Focused Ultrasound for the Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer – an International Registry


This pancreatic cancer registry aims to collect information on people around the world who select focused ultrasound (FUS) as part of their treatment for pancreatic cancer to learn about the performance of the focused ultrasound technology and health outcomes; the impact of focused ultrasound on your overall health; and provide an understanding of the current care for pancreatic cancer.

Full Title of Study: “ARRAY: Focused Ultrasound for the Treatment of PAncReatic CanceR – an InternAtional RegistrY”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: December 30, 2020

Detailed Description

The purpose of the registry is to collect data on the performance of the focused ultrasound (FUS) technology and health outcomes. A wide variety of approaches exist for using FUS on pancreatic cancer patients, and the primary goal is to capture this broad spectrum of approaches and their impact on patients overall health. This information will help provide a better understanding of current care, and may possibly direct further, more specific investigations that will follow this registry. After obtaining informed consent a baseline history, physical examination, laboratory studies, and imaging studies needed per standard of care will be performed. Patients' treatment is determined by their caregivers only, and thus the registry will evaluate patient management in "real-world" conditions.

Enrollment Goal: 100
