Advances in technology and changes in our understanding of tumor biology have allowed breast cancer treatment to evolve toward less disfiguring procedures. Noninvasive ablative therapy is a natural continuation of this trend. The following paper presents the concepts underpinning focused ultrasound ablation therapy for the treatment of breast cancer and reviews the investigative experience to date in the evaluation of this promising technique.
