Bone pain is the most common source of pain in patients suffering from metastatic cancer. Almost all patients with metastatic prostate cancer have skeletal metastases and 90% of patients with progressive breast cancer develop these painful and debilitating lesions. Current pain treatments consist of systemic therapy (analgesics, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and bisphosphonates) and local treatments (radiation, surgery and more recently, Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)).

During the ExAblate(R) treatment, the physician uses the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with registered CT images to visualize the patient's anatomy and then aims focused ultrasound waves at the tumor to relieve the pain. The MRI allows the physician to monitor and continuously adjust the treatment in real time. The patient is consciously sedated to alleviate pain and minimize motion. Due to the high acoustic absorption and low thermal conductivity of the bone cortex, it is possible to use a low level of energy and still achieve a localized heating effect that will relieve the pain while minimizing damage to adjacent tissue.

The ExAblate(R) system will be on display at the GE Healthcare booth (number #5529 South Hall) at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) 94th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting taking place in Chicago from November 30 to December 5 at the McCormick Place Convention Center.

About ExAblate(R)

ExAblate(R) is currently used commercially as a treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids. The system received its European CE Mark in uterine fibroids in 2002 and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the system as a treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids in 2004. Over 4,500 symptomatic wo
