BSD Medical treats patient with MicroThermX System at Beaumont Hospital

BSD Medical has reported that initial patient treatments are conducted at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, using its new MicroThermX Microwave Ablation System.

BSD said MicroThermX is a compact, mobile, proprietary system that includes a microwave generator, single-patient-use disposable antennas, and a thermistor-based temperature monitoring system.

The MicroThermX’s design allows delivery of higher power levels using a single generator and utilizes synchronous phased array technology that was developed and patented by BSD to provide larger and more uniform zones of ablation during a single procedure.

Interventional radiologist Michael Savin said the MicroThermX Microwave Ablation System offers patients a promising, new alternative for treating certain cancers with potential benefits such as less invasiveness and more uniform zones of ablation.
