HIFU IN THE NEWS
Why Sonablate?


The Sonablate system incorporates customized treatment and safety technologies in an effort to strike a balance that has been difficult to achieve in prostate cancer treatment—increasing disease control capabilities while decreasing quality-of-life side effect risks.

A Sonablate HIFU physician can completely customize a patient's treatment plan based on real-time tissue response, tissue density and location of vital structures. Competitive devices are limited to three pre-set power levels: primary, repeat HIFU and salvage (post radiation treatment), no patient receives a customized treatment based on their personal anatomy.
