A new study has found that ultrasound waves may hold promise as a potential cancer treatment tool. Unlike laser therapy, which has limitations in treating deep tumors, ultrasonic waves are able to penetrate up to 12 cm into tissue, without causing harm to healthy cells. This study was conducted by a team of researchers who tested the use of ultrasound in mice and found that it was effective in destroying cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. While the study is still preliminary, this discovery has the potential to offer new treatment options for cancer patients and could result in fewer side effects than traditional treatments. The researchers are now working to further develop the ultrasound technology and to test its effectiveness in clinical trials.
