SONOTHERM 1000 Ultrasound Therapy System
Company : Labthermics Technologies Inc
UMDC Code : 105145
The SONOTHERM 1000 Ultrasound Therapy System was developed to overcome many of the significant limitations of other hyperthermia systems. The properties of ultrasound energy enable the SONOTHERM 1000 to treat tumors at depths to 8 cm. This should increase the numbers of patients which can be treated with hyperthermia. Its multi-sector applicator heats to the very edge of the aperture, allowing large tumors (lateral measurements to 15 cm x 15 cm) to be heated. Each of its sixteen sectors can be varied between 0-100% power to uniformly heat across the volume of the tumor being treated. Should one area of a tumor prove to be difficult to heat, more energy can be directed to that segment without overheating surrounding tissue. Depth of energy penetration can be chosen by adjusting frequency (analogous to changing accelerator energy levels).
