Figure 1: The patient lies in lateral decubitus with the transrectal ultrasound probe inserted for imaging as well as focussed ultrasound emission. The probe is surrounded by a coupling gel (Ablasonic gel) in a balloon. The Ablasonic fluid in a 5°C bath produces a peri-probe temperature of 16-18°C to cool the rectal wall. The patient is warmed by a warmer and covered with blankets to avoid inadvertant hypothermia
