High–Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy Grew in Popularity, According to New DPI Research Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

27 Jun 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Recent advancements in high–intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) have raised its popularity. In clinics, HIFU has been used in the treatment of a diversity of solid malignancies in a clearly defined volume, comprising the liver, pancreas, prostate, uterine fibroids, breast, and soft–tissue sarcomas. By contrast with traditional tumour/cancer treatment modes, like open surgery, radiotheraphy and chemotherapy, HIFU offers the advantages of non–ionisation, non–invasion, and fewer complications after therapy. More Over 115, 000 cases have been treated globally with big success until 2015. 

Rapidly expanding ageing population, high prevalence rates of heart diseases and cancer, surging number of new product introductions, increasing number of clinical trials relating to HIFU applications, and growing focus of top players on the development of technologically advanced systems are some of the major factors propelling the market growth. Furthermore, emerging applications like obstetrics and gynecology, urinary disorders imaging, neurosurgery, and removal of surplus subcutaneous adipose tissue utilising high–energy sound waves are also likely to stimulate the HIFU market growth over the next 6 years.

Still, the tight government regulations for the approval of HIFU system, growing price pressure market players are facing and unfavourable reimbursement scenario are the main stumbling blocks limiting the growth of this sector.

New research study “High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) by Company Profile, Deals Type, Key Trends & Opportunities to 2022” created DPI Research offers a comprehensive evaluation of the market on a global level, covering HIFU makers, research sites, preclinical and clinical research sites, commercial treatment facilities, treatment by indication.
