High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) - Company Profile, Recent Development and Product Analysis

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) - Company Profile, Recent Development and Product Analysis

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a promising non-invasive thermal ablation technique. HIFU treatment is a highly precise and non-invasive treatment procedure using high intensity, focused ultrasound to heat and destroy diseased tissue. The history of using therapeutic ultrasound dates back to early in the 20th century. Technology has continually improved and additional clinical applications, both diagnostic and therapeutic, have become an integral part of medicine today. In HIFU treatment, Ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue rises to more than 65°C, destroying the diseased tissue. Development of HIFU therapy has been greatly enhanced through the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to guide and monitor the procedure. This therapy is more accurately called MRgFUS (MR guided Focused UltraSound).

The recent advancement in high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) have increased its popularity. In clinics, HIFU has been applied to treat a variety of solid malignant tumors in a well-defined volume, including the pancreas, liver, prostate, breast, uterine fibroids, and soft-tissue sarcomas. In comparison to conventional tumor/cancer treatment modalities, such as open surgery, radio- and chemo-therapy, HIFU has the advantages of non-invasion, non-ionization, and fewer complications after treatment. Over 100,000 cases have been treated throughout the world with great success. The fundamental principles of HIFU ablation are coagulative thermal necrosis due to the absorption of ultrasound energy during transmission in tissue and the induced cavitation damage.

The global market for High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is increasing rapidly primarily driven by the increase in cancer patient’s population, growing demand for minimally invasive treatment procedures, and increasing public-private investments. The factors that influence the growth of HIFU Therapy are the increasing development in medical technology and its wide range of application used in the treatment of Prostate cancer, Uterine fibroids, Neurological disorders, Cosmetic medicine and others. Furthermore, stringent regulatory guidelines for the approval of innovative HIFU technologies, rising price pressure and unfavorable reimbursement scenario are the key challenges faced by market players restraining the growth of this market.
