Seoul Women’s Hospital’s HIFU Treatment

Real time Full HD 4D multi-ultrasound, precise treatment with high focusing accuracy

HIFU is the heat technique to coagulate and destroy the disease tissues such as fibroids, and get rid of the discomfort. The treatment keeps the surrounding tissues and organs safe and it matters as much as the efficacy of the treatment itself.

During the treatment, HIFU has to be focused on the discrete regions of tissue necrosis only in precisely targeted positions by careful placement of the focus. Or else, surrounding organs and tissue may be damaged. The equipment we have, HIFUNIT 9000, has a high focusing accuracy that the heat stays in the targeted area and avoids damages in normal tissues.
