We present a case of recurrent pancreatic cancer diagnosed by computer tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography(PET), 7 months after Whipple radical surgery in a 61-year-old female patient. The patient was successfully treated byfocused ultrasound surgery (FUS) by innovative high intensity focused ultrasound device. The patient had no complications.Multiple cycles of chemotherapy were done. Twelve months after FUS the new PET-CT showed no evidence of metabolite activezone in the area of ablation and no progression of disease. The presented case is unique according to the literature as a localrecurrence after radica...
