WE’RE DEVELOPING A
New Platform in
Robotically Assisted Sonic Therapy (RAST)™
a non-invasive focused ultrasound treatment
HistoSonics’ unique new platform technology has the potential to fundamentally change the nature of cancer therapy.
RAST uses histotripsy and the mechanical properties of focused ultrasound to destroy targeted tissues without damaging surrounding tissue or structures. This non-invasive, non-thermal treatment can be used to safely, precisely and effectively destroy unwanted tissue throughout the body, reducing patient trauma and healthcare costs.
Key Features of RAST*
Non-invasive, pulsed sound energy applied from outside the body means no incisions or needles.
Robotically assisted treatment and tracking provide precision, control and accuracy.
Can be used to destroy tissue at the cellular and sub-cellular level.
An embedded imaging array provides real-time visual feedback of tissue destruction.
Has the potential to be used in an outpatient center without general anesthesia.
*HistoSonics is developing a new procedure called RAST. Related technology is in development and is a work in progress.
Histotripsy uses pulsed sound waves to induce a “bubble cloud” that destroys tumors and tissue at the cellular and sub-cellular level. It also allows for visualization in real time, enabling precise tissue destruction.
