WE’RE DEVELOPING A
Non-invasive, Autonomous Robotic Platform
capable of destroying tissue at a sub-cellular level
Robotically Assisted Sonic Therapy (RAST)™
a novel beam therapy and new medical procedure
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 platform 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 focused ultrasound delivery 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 tissue at the cellular and sub-cellular level. It also allows for visualization in real time, enabling precise tissue destruction.
REVOLUTIONARY ADVANTAGES OF HISTOTRIPSY
No incisions or needles
Predictable and controllable
No other technology combines all of these attributes
