Clinical Laserthermia Systems AB (publ) today announced that the company has entered an agreement with Quadia Diagnostic Imaging Center in Piaseczno, Poland on a commercial evaluation of its second-generation TRANBERG® Thermal Therapy System with Thermoguide™ Workstation in MR-guided stereotactic focal laser ablation of localized prostate.
We are very pleased that Quadia, a private imaging center with well-established reputation on the Polish market as the leading site in the MRI diagnostics of prostate cancer and other urological malignancies, have decided to evaluate our second-generation TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System with Thermoguide™ Workstation in MR-guided stereotactic FLA for minimally-invasive treatment of patients diagnosed with localized prostate cancer”, says Perjan Pleunis, VP Sales in Europe at CLS.
“Today, patients with localized cancer that is confined to the prostate gland are either just observed (Active Surveillance) or receive radical treatment. This may include a surgery, to remove their prostate which exposes them to higher risks of complications such as urinary incontinence or erectile dysfunction. By working with an experienced team of radiologists and urologists and applying our extensive expertise in MR-guided diagnostic procedures to an MR-guided laser focal therapy procedure, we aim at offering our patients with localized prostate cancer a minimally-invasive treatment with faster recovery times and lower risk of complications. We look forward to working with CLS as our partner in developing our therapeutic business”, says Dr. Magdalena Zagrodzka – Radiologist and CEO at Quadia.
CLS second generation TRANBERG® Thermal Therapy System with Thermoguide™ Workstation, for high precision ablation, is CE-marked for installation and integration with MRI scanners from Siemens Healthineers and GE Healthcare and will be showcased this spring at the ECIO meeting in Vienna, Austria during April 24-27.
About localized prostate cancer
About 1,700,000 new cases per year of localized prostate cancer are reported worldwide. Although the landscape of prostate cancer treatment shows several treatment options, there is still an important unmet need for patients who progressed to intermediate risk stage. The currently available surgical options show significant risks and side effects related to urinary and erectile functions and quality of life.
About TRANBERG® | ThermoguideTM Workstation
Thermoguide Workstation connects TRANBERG® | Thermal Therapy System with an MRI scanner and visualizes tissue temperature and extent of tissue ablation performed, both numerically and graphically on the image sequences of the treatment area that are continuously generated by the MRI scanner. By accessing image sequences with minimal delay, the software enables tissue temperature measurements in real time as well as calculation of ablation size with high precision and accuracy. All clearly presented in a graphic user interface to give treating physicians optimal guidance and a safe and efficient workflow during treatment.
