With an ever increasing number of units in the UK (and Europe) setting up focal therapy programmes using one or more of several energy sources eg. HIFU, cryotherapy, electroporation, it is important that we as HIFU users set the standard in training in using minimally invasive interventional therapies to treat prostate cancer.
Richard Hindley and Raj Nigam have kindly volunteered to draw up appropriate and focused training guidelines for new HIFU users which we can circulate and discuss at the next HIFU User Group meeting.
In fact the next meeting of our group will be at the "Focal Therapy for Prostate Cancer" conference which will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons, London on 10th April – it is advertised at the end of this email and I am sure will prove to be very popular.
