Acoustic MedSystems Inc
Business Identifier: ultrasound catheters for targeted thermal ablation of tumors
Public Profile:
Acoustic MedSystems, Inc. (AMS) is developing interventional devices and systems for treatment of localized disease. AMS specializes in applications of treatment planning and image-guided interventions using ablative therapy technologies and radiation therapy. Specific products are ablation/radiation treatment planning, delivery guidance software and systems, and high intensity needle-based and catheter-based interventional devices for thermal ablative therapy. These devices create highly conformal (shape, volume) controlled high-intensity ultrasound energy delivery. The companyís primary initiatives use its core competencies in interventional image guidance, ultrasound ablation technology, treatment planning / dose optimization, and clinical systems integration to develop minimally invasive devices and integrated systems for treatment of localized cancers and other disorders. AMS partners with research teams at several major universities throughout the U.S.A. and Canada for development and commercialization of advanced medical technologies and medical robotics applications. Acoustic MedSystems, Inc. (AMS) was formed to commercialize its proprietary ACOUSTXTM technology (Applicators with Controllable Output of Ultrasound for Selective Treatment) for minimally invasive targeted thermal ablation of tumors and other soft-tissue diseases. The primary product development emphasis is for focal treatment of early stage prostate cancer, ablation of liver cancer, and treatment of uterine fibroids.
