Used together, these devices — ExactVu™ Micro-Ultrasound (Micro-US) and Focal One Robotic HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) — detect even the smallest abnormalities for precisely targeted biopsies and then destroy precisely targeted prostate cancer cells. This is an exciting new alternative to more radical treatments using surgery or radiation therapy that treat the entire prostate rather than focusing on just the diseased area. As a result, the risk of life-altering side effects such as urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction are dramatically reduced. This diagnosis and treatment protocol can replace costly MRI, and radical surgery and radiation for qualified patients, and is a game-changer with regard to men’s ability to recover quickly from these outpatient procedures and preserve their prostate.
