Sonablate® HIFUMechanism of Action

Sonablate HIFU Advantages:

  • Real-time ultrasound-derived feedback
  • Non-invasive, bloodless ablation
  • Adjustable for each dose of HIFU energy
  • Repeatable procedure, if needed
  • Radiation-free
  • Healthy tissue sparing
  • Minimal side effects

The Sonablate HIFU Device

The Sonablate HIFU 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 HIFU's Built-In Safety Features

Used to guide the energy delivery, TCM assesses energy delivery adequacy of each elemental HIFU lesion.

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.

Used to guide energy delivery, RIM monitors echogenic changes that may indicate increased near field heating.

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.
