Our 3 Step Advanced Process
at specific tissue using ultrasound MR-fusion.
with pinpoint accuracy while sparing untargeted tissue.
using real-time imaging and advanced TCM Technology.
Advantages of using the Sonablate Device
- Minimally invasive, bloodless ablation
- Minimal side effects
- Healthy tissue sparing
- Adjustable for each dose of HIFU energy
- Repeatable procedure, if needed
- Real-time ultrasound-derived feedback
The Sonablate Device
The Sonablate device is comprised of three main components:
Provides precise and focused ablative energy into the prostate. The planning and control functions that accompany the probe allow for custom treatment for every patient.
This console powers the probe and is made up of several programmable hardware and software modules that are used to adapt treatments to meet the patient’s needs.
Controls water path management system including the bolus and coupling to the rectal wall while circulating degassed, cooled water as an added safety feature to prevent rectal injury
Sonablate’s Built-In Safety Features
Tissue Change Monitoring (TCM)
Used to guide the energy delivery, TCM assesses energy delivery adequacy of each elemental HIFU lesion.
HIFU Power Adjustment
The total acoustic power (TAP) control provides the ability to make real-time power level adjustments specific to the needs of each prostate region under treatment.
Reflexivity Index Monitor (RIM)
Used to guide energy delivery, RIM monitors echogenic changes that may indicate increased near field heating.
Intra-treatment Ultrasound-guided Imaging
The ability to view tissue changes as the treatment is progressing within each zone of ablation. Allows the physician to watch for prostate swelling, movement, tissue reaction, etc.
A multi-vendor, integrated MRI / Ultrasound fusion system with enhanced features to allow for more accurate fusion.
Import data for focal treatment planning from multiple fusion partners:
