William Beaumont Hospital in Michigan, US, has deployed a MicroThermX microwave ablation system from BSD Medical to treat cancers.
William Beaumont, a three-hospital regional health system, has purchased MicroThermX, a compact, mobile system that features a microwave generator, single-patient-use antennas and a thermistor-based temperature monitoring system.
BSD sales and marketing vice president Sam Maravich said the company is excited to supply the MicroThermX ablation treatment to a high-profile, interventional oncology centre.
"William Beaumont is a referral centre for patients throughout Michigan," Maravich added.
The MicroThermX allows delivery of higher power levels using a single generator with its patented synchronous phased array technology. This utilises multiple antennas working in tandem to provide a range of uniform zones of ablation.
The MicroThermX features high-end disposables (SynchroWave antennas) used in each ablation treatment and will provide significant ongoing revenue stream, according to BSD Medical.
The SynchroWave microwave antenna features an internally-cooled antenna shaft that minimises skin burns and unwanted tract ablation while a full shaft length fluoropolymer coating reduces tissue adhesions.
Other features of the SynchroWave microwave antenna include distinct 5cm distal tip depth marking, optional handle extension with easy-fit and release design, light weight tubing organiser and flexible cable insulator.
