ECHOPULSE® is the first robotic and 100% non-invasive solution for echotherapy treatment (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound HIFU) of thyroid nodules and breast fibroadenoma

EchoPulse 

The therapeutic ultrasound is combined with a standard ultrasound beam to control the accuracy of the treatment.

It can be operated by a single person in a nonsurgical environment. It leaves no scars and maintains the thyroid function and the integrity of the breast tissue.

HOW ECHOTHERAPY WORKS

ECHOPULSE® echotherapy targets the nodule through thermoablation. The robot’s treatment head combines a therapeutic ultrasound probe with a linear one: The therapeutic ultrasound probe delivers the HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) beam and focusses it to concentrated the thermal energy to the target. The linear probe allows real-time image visualization for a precise energy deposit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BREAST FIBROADENOMA

Breast fibroadenoma are one of the most common benign tumors of the breast, and account for approx. 70% of all breast masses. Although fibroadenoma can develop at any age, they mainly develop in adolescents or women under the age of 30*. They may feel like a small firm or rubber-like nodule in the breast, moving easily under the skin when examined. Although generally painless in many patients they can cause pain and discomfort. For others they are a psychological burden. Either can lead to a decision to treat. Echopulse® echotherapy is the first technique allowing treatment of breast fibroadenoma from outside the body.

 

 

ECHOTHERAPY RESULTS FOR FIBROADENOMA

Volume reductions of fibroadenoma after ECHOPULSE treatment can be expected to be around 70% after 12 months. Continued decrease in volume has been observed after this period.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THYROID NODULES

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland located below the Adam’s apple. It produces hormones which regulate our body’s metabolism and our energy. The thyroid gland can produce abnormal tissue that forms thyroid nodules. These nodules are mostly benign. However even benign nodules can be problematic: If they are so-called hot nodules, they tend to produce too much hormones and can deregulate the thyroid function (hyperthyroidism). Controversially, cold nodules can also impact the thyroid function, especially if they continue to grow. Consequences may be compressive symptoms which can lead to difficulties in breathing or swallowing. Echopulse® echotherapy is the first technique allowing treatment of thyroid nodules from outside the body.
