Focal One

Focal strategy for Prostate Cancer is taking a growing role in today’s surgical practice. By combining all the latest technologies in imaging and treatment, Focal One® brings the answer to all requirements for ideal focal therapy: accurate and MR-fused imaging, non-invasive surgical approach, precise and efficient therapeutic energy and end-of-treatment validation imaging.

Multi-parametric MRI has become the standard for Prostate Cancer imaging. As a first-line diagnostic tool, it has become universally used to identify tumor localization and guide biopsy in order to improve their detection rate. The biopsy-proven tumor localization on the MRI as well as the biopsy locations and results are used to guide the focal treatment of Focal One thanks to a proprietary non-rigid fusion algorithm (HI Fusion).
