The Journal Of Therapeutic Ultrasound Publishes Article On SonaCare Medical's Sonablate HIFU Technology
Published: Sep 26, 2017
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SonaCare Medical, leading developer and manufacturer of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technologies, reports on a new publication in the Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound. The article is titled, "Clinical validation of real-time tissue change monitoring during prostate tissue ablation with high intensity focused ultrasound."
TCM, a utility found only in Sonablate®, analyzes automatically components of the ultrasound imaging signal after each small zone of ablation is delivered to assist in deciding whether sufficient energy was absorbed by the treated tissue. This allows Sonablate® physicians to decide whether it is necessary to go back and add additional energy to any specific portion of the total region of ablation.
According to Dr. Mark Carol, CEO of SonaCare Medical, "The publishing of this work provides validation for a tool that SonaCare believes to be an important differentiator for SonaCare technology. The feedback it provides allows physicians to use unique Sonablate treatment delivery controls to adjust the treatment in response to how any given volume of tissue responds to energy delivery, leading to better clinical outcomes in terms of efficacy and safety. Dr. Sanghvi, the inventor of the Sonablate technology and one of the founders of our company, has worked tirelessly for decades to bring the benefits of HIFU to the clinical arena. We are delighted to see this aspect of his team's seminal work in print."
Since Sonablate® received FDA clearance on October 09, 2015, more than 1,200 patients have had a Sonablate HIFU prostate procedure across the 40+ locations in the U.S., including placements at top-tier academic institutions in California, Indiana, Oklahoma, Maryland, New York, Arizona, and Texas.
