High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy is a novel, emerging, and therapeutic modality technology. It involves propagation of ultrasound waves through cancerous tissues that kills the cancer cells. HIFU is a minimal invasive technique and performed with real-time imaging by ultrasound or MRI to enable treatment targeting and monitoring. This technology have been extensively exploited for the treatment of prostate, liver, pancreatic, and bladder cancer. The American Cancer Society estimated that about 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer have been registered in the US in year 2017. Moreover, the number of people living beyond a cancer diagnosis reached were nearly 14.5 million in 2014 and is expected to rise to over 19 million by 2024. Moreover, increasing development in medical technology and its wide range of application used in the treatment of uterine fibroids, neurological disorders, cosmetic medicine, others, fuel the growth of the market. However, high cost of the therapy and its related side effects such as urinary tract infection may restrain the growth of the market.

April, 2016- SonaCare medical announced strategic partnership with MIM, a world leader in medical imaging software. SonaCare Medical and MIM have worked together over the past year to develop cross system compatibility and deployment of the MIM Symphony fusion technology on the Sonablate prostate tissue ablation platform. This technology development allows annotated MRI data, generated by MIM Symphony, to be fused with intraoperative ultrasound images generated at the time of ablation. Incorporating this data into the ablation plan helps improve targeting regions of interest within the prostate gland during ablation.
