What is the energy level used in Thermaspec treatment?
While most equipment applicators transmit a high level of energy (in some of them up to 80 Watts), (attributed to the cooling system), Medispec’s Thermaspec uses only 40 Watts for reaching the Working Temperature Level and then only 20 Watts for maintaining the application’s temperature level (applied energy).
What is unique about this medical device?
Thermaspec allows the doctor or medical professional to adjust the position of the applicator to the size of the prostate by using special marks on the catheter. Medispec developed an applicator that is multi-use. Thermocouples are installed on the applicator itself. The doctor or medical professional must replace the catheter between patient treatment sessions. For […]
Is there a risk for the rectum?
In equipment with the cooling systems, temperature sensors (“Thermocouples”) are only evaluating the reaching temperature to the prostate, and therefore it is recommended to use a trans-rectal probe. Within Thermaspec, sensors are taking the exact measurement of the temperature received by the prostate, with no interference of cooling water.
What are the main advantages of Thermaspec medical device system?
Level of Energy – While most equipments’ applicator transmits a high level of energy (in some of them up to 80 Watts), Medispec’s Thermaspec uses a relatively low temperature while maintaining the application’s temperature level (applied energy). Minimum Risk for the Rectum – In the equipment cooling systems, the Temperature Sensors (“Thermocouples”) are only EVALUATING the temperature […]
Who is a candidate for Thermaspec treatment?
