Sonatherm® Laparoscopic HIFU device used to demonstrate thermal ablation at hands-on lab
CHARLOTTE, NC -- SonaCare Medical, a leading manufacturer of medical High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) devices, recently participated in the American Urology Association's (AUA) surgical summit "Small Renal Mass 360°." Key opinion leaders in urology presented on the latest diagnostic and therapeutic advances related to small renal masses while attendees had the opportunity to evaluate and learn about different ablative technologies in hands-on labs. Attendees at the Los Angeles, CA lab, under direction of course director Inderbir Gill, MD, successfully used the Sonatherm® (HIFU) device to laparoscopically ablate porcine kidney tissue as well as the bladder wall. Dr. Gill had previously performed the first outpatient renal ablation with Sonatherm®.
