SonaCare Medical Partners with University College London to Create Center of Excellence for HIFU Surgical Ablation Technology
Date:5/2/2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SonaCare Medical, a global leader in minimally invasive HIFU technologies, announced today that it has partnered with University College London (UCL) to create a HIFU Center of Excellence. The Center of Excellence will provide physician training and proctoring along with clinical studies, patient satisfaction research and advanced technology development associated with two innovative HIFU systems: the Sonatherm® laparoscopic HIFU surgical ablation system and the Sonablate® 500 transrectal HIFU surgical ablation system.

According to Mark Emberton , MD, Director of the Division of Surgery and Interventional Science, University College London, "Our collaboration with SonaCare Medical's innovative technology provides a great platform for us to help expand the use of HIFU in a responsible and effective way. Tissue preserving strategies have been used successfully in other solid organ cancers, such as kidney cancer with great results. Published results from our practice continue to demonstrate that focal therapy delivers good cancer control along with a significant reduction in treatment side effects, which suggests a new option in a spectrum of prostate cancer care that, based on risk profile, can effectively balance clinical benefits and quality of life.

"The highly precise Sonablate 500 HIFU transrectal system has already proven an effective way to transition from treating the entire prostate to treating only the known prostate cancer and the addition of the Sonatherm® laparoscopic system allows us to offer an important new minimally invasive option for certain tumors," added Dr. Emberton.

UCL researchers presented multiple abstracts highlighting the ability of HIFU to balance disease control and quality of life at the recent European Association of Urolog
