Need for Image Guided Minimally Invasive Ablative Treatments Featured Prominently at American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting
Date:5/23/2013

SAN DIEGO, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The need to add tissue preserving therapies to the prostate cancer treatment continuum was highlighted prominently at the 108th Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA), in San Diego.  According to SonaCare Medical, a leader in minimally invasive high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology, the need for image-guided technologies to better identify and localize disease, and for urologists to consider minimally invasive ablative treatments, was addressed in the Opening Session, the Dr. W. Whitmore Memorial Lecture, and multiple sessions throughout the AUA meeting. 

"Giving the annual Whitmore Lecture sponsored by the Society of Urologic Oncology, Dr. Urs Studer presented an exhaustive review of published results to clearly demonstrate the overutilization of radical prostatectomy in the treatment of prostate cancer—having an obvious negative impact on those patients whose cancers are not life threatening or who are beyond surgical cure. This theme, fitting into the PSA screening controversy and the newly proposed AUA guidelines, was also in evidence from multiple presentations on imaging, pathologic and genetic predictors of malignant potential.  And, the growing academic interest in focal and minimally invasive alternative therapies for prostate cancer that have lower morbidity and cost," said Willet F. Whitmore III, MD, FACS.

Reflecting the latest and most advanced technology for focal prostate cancer therapy, SonaCare Medical showcased the new SmartTarget image registration and fusion software, developed by UCL (University College London) which combines and displays diagnostic information from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with live ultrasound images to enable targeted prostate treatment. SmartTarget has undergone extensive clinical evaluation
