Explanation: As an initial HIFU application Spectrasonics has identified cardiac ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. The standard treatment for atrial fibrillation involves using either a scalpel or an RF ***cauterizer**** to destroy strips of heart tissue in the left atrium and/or region surrounding the pulmonary veins. This procedure is performed primarily during cardiac bypass operations and works by blocking the degenerate electrophysiological pathways that cause fibrillation. http://www.spectrasonics.com/hifu.php
