Microwave Tissue Ablation System Treats Liver and Lung Disease

 

February 24, 2011

The Accu2i, by Microsulis Medical, is a percutaneous microwave tissue ablation (pMTA) system.

It combines extreme ease of use with the widest range of clinical applications for rapid, precise coagulation of unwanted tissue masses, while avoiding the risks associated with longer, more invasive surgical interventions. The device is a single high power high frequency 2.45 GHz closed, water-cooled microwave needle that is 1.8 mm in diameter. It can address tissue masses more than 5 cm in size in just six minutes, making it between three and 10 times faster than other systems. Clinicians have used the device primarily in the treatment of liver and lung disease.
