High Intensity Focus Ultrasound a newer protocol is available in Toronto, Canada and other Canadian places (maybe closest to USA), is used outside USA other places right now. Being held up by FDA for use here, but supposedly coming here soon. I have no idea how good it is, it does sound interesting enough. Some people have done this and there stories are at www.yananow.net
in case someone is interested. You could google search more on it.
The imaging method that John T is going abroad to get looks like it is better than what we have here to date in the USA, another FDA holding up stuff for our benefit, of course. Sorry but I have to be skeptical about the FDA and our lobbyists system. Some things the FDA rushes through which has been seen and other things are dragged out.....makes me curious. Anyway we have more choices and can go get them if we want.
