BSD Medical, a provider of ablation systems, has launched new SynchroWave short tip antenna.
The launch of new SynchroWave ST antenna allows the company’s to expand its MicroThermX ablation market opportunity and meet the needs of the entire interventional radiology marketplace.
The SynchroWave ST antenna is designed to deliver smaller, spherical ablation zones that more target smaller areas of diseased tissue, while SynchroWave long tip antenna delivers larger ablation zones, reducing the need for multiple ablations on larger tumors.
The multiple configurations of the SynchroWave antenna provide physicians the ability to precisely target the ablation zone to the numerous sizes and shapes of diseased tissue, significantly increasing the number of cases that can be treated with the MicroThermX, according to the company.
The MicroThermX system is designed to allow non-parallel placement of multiple antennas with one generator and flexibility in approach angles for placement of antennas in difficult to reach areas.
BSD Medical is involved in developing systems to treat cancer and benign diseases using heat therapy delivered using focused radiofrequency (RF) and microwave energy.
