US HIFU Technology Featured At Third International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound
Date:11/19/2012

median follow up of 32 months.  Results from 88 patients who have competed at least 24 months follow-up indicate that the short-term functional benefits of focal therapy seem to extend into medium term follow-up, alongside encouraging cancer control.

Dr. Dickinson also presented the paper, "MR-directed selective HIFU therapy of prostate cancer using a TRUS guidance platform," which reported that MRI-TRUS registration was performed on 17 patients, as the 'first-in-man' pilot study of this fusion technology to guide focal treatment.  Results demonstrated that MR-US registration is feasible, efficient and can localize lesions on an ultrasound based treatment platform. This not only has potential for improved accuracy of focal treatments, but may also improve diagnostic sampling strategies for prostate cancer. Fewer, and better, biopsies could be performed on suspicious lesions seen on pre-biopsy mpMRI, with potentially increased diagnostic rates of clinically significant cancer, and reduced rates for over-diagnosis of clinically insignificant disease.

US HIFU Chief Development Officer Mark Carol, MD, was also selected to present at the Symposium during the Vendor Lunchtime Discussion Session.  According to Dr. Carol, "US HIFU has a broad range of technologies for delivering HIFU, all of which rely on the use of ultrasound to "Target, Treat, and Track" cancer, including Sonatherm® a laparoscopic probe capable of extending the delivery of HIFU to organs otherwise not easily accessible, such as the kidney and liver.  The Sonatherm continues with the approach of incorporating imaging and therapy capability into the same probe, a major advantage over other ablation modalities."

"We want to congratulate Dr. Dickinson for being named a Young Investigator award winner and commend her and her colleagues at UCL for their ground-breaking research on HIFU," said Mike Klein, CEO for US HIFU.  "We are gratified that Dr.
