Intense Therapeutic Ultrasound (ITU) from Guided Therapy Systems acts like an invisible scalpel – working beneath surface of the skin – precisely delivering energy to desired depths within the body.
As a result, our technologies are providing new and safer treatment options for patients and consumers without the downtime and complications associated with traditional surgeries and invasive procedures.
Our ITU technologies capitalize on the fact that as an acoustic wave propagates through tissue, part of it is absorbed and converted to heat. When tissue temperature is raised sufficiently, the tissue is thermally affected or coagulated.
microwave and radio frequency, ultrasound is
the only energy source that can penetrate safely through
intervening tissue AND be conformed to a specific
shape within the body.
