SonaCare Medical to Integrate SmartTarget Image Registration and Fusion Software from University College London into Industry Leading Prostate HIFU System
Date:4/30/2013

i> with the aid of SmartTarget as part of the INDEX Trial. The system is also used within other UCL-led clinical trials that focus on targeted prostate biopsy.

"While tissue preserving strategies have been used successfully in other solid organ cancers, adoption in prostate cancer has been hampered by limitations in diagnosing and localizing clinically significant prostate cancers," said Mark Carol , M.D., Chief Development Officer for SonaCare Medical.  "Designed to enable targeted treatment of clinically significant prostate cancers and to reduce treatment-related side effects, the development of SmartTarget image registration and fusion technology is a tremendous breakthrough that may truly transform prostate cancer care."

The SmartTarget project, led by Dr. Barratt and Professor Emberton, and funded by the UK Department of Health and Wellcome Trust's Health Innovation Challenge Fund, focuses on translating technology which combines state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging with advanced image guidance technology to provide doctors with information on cancer location, size and shape automatically so that it can be used to direct and guide prostate biopsy and minimally-invasive cancer treatments. In particular, the SmartTarget system exploits MRI, which can detect and characterize clinically important cancers very accurately. 

Published results from UCL demonstrate that MRI-US registration can localize lesions on the Sonablate 500 system without interfering with the standard surgical workflow. This not only has potential for improved accuracy of focal treatments, but may also improve diagnostic sampling strategies for prostate cancer. According to UCL researchers, fewer, and better, biopsies could be performed on suspicious lesions seen on pre-biopsy, with potentially increased diagnostic rates of clinically significant cancer, and reduced rates for over-diagnosis of
