лечението-echotherapyNon invasive solution with HIFU

Without surgery or anesthesia, the echotherapy targets the dysfunctional thyroid nodules allowing accurate treatment.

 

The treatment of thyroid nodules is performed by Echotherapy that uses high-intensity-focused-ultrasound (HIFU) for highly accurate treatment and ultrasound imaging for real-time visualization.

 

The echotherapy presents the following characteristics: 

• It is a non-surgical non-invasive and radiation-free procedure.
• Without required general anesthesia, the procedure us performed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation.
• It is an out-patient procedure, with the patient coming in the morning and being discharged in the afternoon.

 

+Treatment efficacy and tolerance were evaluated in a clinical study which came up with promising results:

 

Transversal sonography scan and 123I thyroid scan in a 26 year-old-man with right toxic thyroid nodule obtained before HIFU and 18 months after HIFU(1).
