MR imaging and thermometry provide real-time monitoring to allow continuous adjustment of treatment parameters according to need.
This ensures that sufficient heat is delivered at the target while avoiding adjacent vulnerable structures.
The movable endorectal focused ultrasound transducer with nearly 1,000 ultrasound rays generates an adjustable focus that can ablate cancerous tissue throughout the prostate gland.
The sharp margin of the ultrasound beam allows targeting of tumors within less than 1 mm of the sphincters and neurovascular bundles, with no heat applied to these structures.
The active rectal cooling system further safeguards the rectal wall.
Final assessment with contrast MRI provides immediate verification of complete ablation.
Targeted ablation, high resolution MR visualization and flexible planning software are designed to deliver a focal prostate treatment precisely tailored to the individual patient, reducing treatment risks while optimizing results.
CE MARK REGULATORY APPROVALS
- LOCALLY CONFINED PROSTATE CANCER
Sharp margins between ablated tissue and adjacent structures.
Real time thermal feedback for continuous monitoring and adjustment.
Immediate assessment of treatment outcome.
No risk of re-treating.
MR imaging for target identification and verification designed to minimize damage to prostatic and peri-prostatic functional structures;
Single treatment allows fast recovery and return to normal activity.
Attractive for patients;
Medical facilities can attract and treat additional patient groups and strengthen their hospital/clinic leadership in innovation and advanced care.
