December 2014 Research Roundup


Does focused ultrasound plus chemotherapy and radiation have a better survival rate, efficacy, and clinical outcome than other treatments for pancreatic cancer? Is focused ultrasound a safe and noninvasive treatment for local unresectable recurrence of osteosarcoma? What are the long-term results for uterine fibroid patients 5 years after focused ultrasound treatment? Can focused ultrasound be used for salvage therapy after brachytherapy in patients with prostate cancer? These questions were posed in recently published journal articles.
