Focal One® - HIFU Technology

Precision Matters

Focal One HIFU technology combines the latest imaging and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to precisely contour and ablate the targeted lesion while avoiding critical structures

FOCUSED ULTRASOUND
(HIFU)

The Focal One® HIFU Robotic System uses high performance imaging and HIFU technology allows the Urologist to precisely target the prostate with submillimetric accuracy, sparing healthy surrounding tissue and preserving patients’ quality of life.   

How HIFU Technology Applications Work In Medicine

Ultrasound waves have been used in medicine for close to a century through different clinical applications. Today there are two main fields where Ultrasound is used in the human body — Ultrasound Imaging and Focused Ultrasound Therapy.

Ultrasound Imaging
  • 3-10 MHz frequently
  • “Parallel” beam
  • Very low power (0.02 W)
Ultrasound Therapy (HIFU)
  • 3 MHz frequently
  • Focused beams ultrasound
  • Very high power (200W) 10,000 times more than imaging

THE PRINCIPLE OF HIFU

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses an ultrasound probe to deliver high-intensity sound waves at a precise point. The magnitude of ultrasound energy delivered rapidly raises the temperature at the focal point, causing coagulation necrosis without damaging healthy tissue and structures
outside the targeted area.

Multi-Element Phased Array Transducer The unique design of the Dynamic Focusing probe consists of 16 isocentric rings with independent power supply for the electronic displacement of the focal point.

Dynamic Focusing Beam Steering The HIFU energy can be delivered by activating individual pulses of focused ultrasound waves. The extent of the ablation zone is customized by activating up to 8 individual focus points. Stacked 5 mm apart, with one second of energy delivery per pulse. This continuous process allows for lesions between 5 and 40 mm

THE PRECISION OF HIFU

A large body of clinical evidence shows promising cancer control. Watch Dr. Lance Willsey discuss the benefits of targeted, precise Prostate ablation with HIFU which can offer the best out comes for both Physician and Patient. HIFU allows the Physician to preserve a Patient’s quality of life. Patients maintain their continence and preservation of sexual function following HIFU treatment.

Advantages of Dynamic Focusing   

Electronic displacement of focal point allows a precise non-invasive destruction of the target area of the prostate, sparing healthy surrounding tissue and minimizing side effects.
  • Access to anterior part of large prostates (A-P up to 40 mm)
  • More homogeneous lesions
  • Faster treatment for the same volume
  • Conformational treatment to fit lesion and avoid critical structures
  • Customizable for focal, multiple lesions, hemi or whole gland treatment
