What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

No evaluation of the quality of this assessment has been made for the HTA database. Citation HAYES, Inc. High-Intensity focused ultrasound (...) for salvage therapy of recurrent prostate cancer. Lansdale: HAYES, Inc. Directory Publication. 2017 Authors' conclusions High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a minimally invasive (transrectal) treatment that generates heat through sound energy to destroy tumor tissue. Sound waves produced by an ultrasonic transducer mounted on an endorectal probe penetrate the rectal wall and ablate either the entire prostate gland or focal areas containing tumor while avoiding damage to normal tissue.
