It sounds like science fiction but it s not. As described in the http://www.hifu.ca/InternationalHIFUhttp://www.internationalhifu.com/...href="http://www.insightec.com/108-en/Fibroid-TreatmentLocations.aspx">http://...href="http://www.ultrashape.com/company_profile.aspx">http://www.ultrashape.co... focused ultrasound is fascinating, and seems feasible, there s one thing about it that I wish was fiction. If it lands somewhere other than where intended, it could destroy (ablate!) that area unintentionally. Then again, hitting the right ' area could save your life.
