HistoSonics has announced that the first kidney cancer patient has been treated in Leeds, U.K., using the company's histotripsy platform.

This procedure marks the initial treatment in the HistoSonics-sponsored CAIN trial, a phase I prospective, multicenter study that is evaluating the safety and technical success of its noninvasive histotripsy system for targeting and destroying primary solid renal tumors.
