MRgFUS - MRgFUS
Women’s Health

TOMABLATE women health solution provides a non-invasive treatment for symptomatic Uterine Fibroids and Adenomyosis that spares the uterus, enabling future fertility. Focused ultrasound waves, guided by magnetic resonance imaging are used to safely ablate tumor tissue, ensuring a high rate of effectiveness with minimal complications and adverse events. Performed on an outpatient basis, patient can return to work and normal activity within a day.

Uterine Fibroids

TOMABLATE uses MR guided Focused (MRgFUS) as a non-invasive thermal ablation technique to relieve symptoms caused by uterine fibroids with minimum effect on the surrounding tissue. The MRgFUS results in destruction of the uterine fibroid tissue using a controlled thermal effect.

The ultrasound energy is focused onto the fibroid, heating the targeted tissue above the protein denaturation threshold at temperatures above 55ºC for one second. Heating the fibroid tissue beyond this threshold for a few seconds results in local tissue heat fixation and coagulative necrosis of the treated volume. A single application of the energy is called a ‘sonication’ and a typical treatment is comprised of multiple repetitions. Sonications are repeated until the entire volume of the fibroid has been treated. Immediately post treatment, the physician can evaluate the result by injecting a contrast agent (special dye) that shows up on MRI, indicating the extent of the treatment within the targeted region.

Adenomayosis

TOMABLATE uses MR guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) as a non-invasive thermal ablation technique to relieve symptoms caused by adenomyosis with minimum effect on the surrounding tissue. The effect of MRgFUS is based on tissue destruction of by controlled thermal effect.

The ultrasound energy is focused into uterus and onto the adenomyotic region, heating the targeted tissue above the protein denaturation threshold at temperatures above 55ºC for one second. Heating the adenomyosis tissue beyond this threshold for a few seconds, results in local tissue necrosis and cell death in the treated area. A single application of the energy is called a ‘sonication’ and a treatment comprises multiple repetitions. Sonications are repeated until the entire volume of the adenomyotic region has been treated. The effect of the treatment is evaluated immediately after the treatment by injecting a contrast agent (special dye) that shows up on MRI, indicating the extent of the treatment within the targeted region.
