The Focal One® HIFU is the ideal treatment tool to ablate just the diseased part of the prostate for the optimal preservation of quality of life. This latest HIFU medical device marketed is dedicated to focal therapy. The real-time imaging allows for precise local ablation in one session under general anesthesia, repeatable if necessary, with low risk of side effects.
The whole prostate is scanned by the transrectal ultrasound imaging probe and displayed on the Focal One screen as a three-dimensional reconstruction of the area to be ablated.
Finally, the system automatically determines the optimal number of lesions based on the planning and produces High Intensity Focused Ultrasound waves to destroy the targeted cells.
