in this respect," said Mark Carol
, M.D., Chief Development Officer for SonaCare Medical. "It combines ultrasound imaging and therapeutic focused ultrasound delivery capabilities into a package that is delivered in a sterile manner through a standard 12 mm robotic surgery access port. Unlike other forms of thermal ablation, such as radiofrequency, microwave, and cryo, Sonatherm
does not require puncturing the target with a needle, which can cause bleeding, and its use of on-board US imaging for targeting and monitoring of the treatment is a capability not present in these other forms of ablation.
"Unlike any other HIFU technology available currently, Sonatherm allows urologists to add HIFU to their surgical practice with only a minimal learning curve. Easily understood by urologists with an extensive range of potential indications, the response we've received from urologists has been extremely positive with great excitement about adding it to their practices," Dr. Carol added.
"During our extensive meetings with European users and key opinion leaders throughout the EAU, we saw significant interest in HIFU and the development of a common technology platform designed to support multiple HIFU probes for a wide variety of urological indications," said Mike Klein , CEO for US HIFU. "Built on the foundation of our proven HIFU technologies that have been used to treat more than 12,000 patients worldwide, the SonaCare Medical urology platform will enable us to deploy new applications regardless of which system users currently have. This not only offers customers the ability to rapidly expand their clinical capabilities, but also offers significant economic efficiencies and practice development opportunities by enabling multiple physicians within a group to implement treatment services on a wider array of clinical applications."
