Treating fibroids non-invasively

ExAblate for the treatment of uterine fibroids

An FDA-approved clinical trial is being conducted in the United States for the treatment of uterine fibroids. The treatment is being done on the ExAblate system with the enhanced sonication technique, when treating up to 100% individual fibroid volume. The enhanced sonication is an additional treatment tool available in the ExAblate system for the treatment of uterine fibroids. 

The objective of this Phase IV study is to evaluate the safety of the ExAblate treatment of uterine fibroids using the enhanced sonication techniques, based on the current commercially-approved treatment guidelines. Treatment may include up to 100% of individual fibroid volume, within established serosal and sacral treatment margins.The Enhanced sonication is one of the various sonication modes that may lead to increased thermal dose volume of each sonication without additional safety risks. This is an additional treatment tool available in the ExAblate system for the treatment of uterine fibroids.The safety profile of the Enhanced Sonication was investigated under an FDA-regulated IDE study. FDA granted approval of Enhanced Sonication with the requirement to perform a post-approval study to collect additional safety data when treating up to 100% of individual fibroid volume.
