Multiple AveCure(TM) systems can concurrently apply energy to treat larger lesions or shape the ablation zone to fit lesion boundaries. Image-2 below shows a liver lesion (70mm x 70mm x 90mm) ablation zone created by using three AveCure(TM) probes. The top left image is pre-ablation; top center and top right images are during ablation; bottom three images are post-ablation.

Post-ablation images show significant shrinkage in the liver tissue ablation zone. The AveCure(TM) probe of the same type percutaneously ablated a kidney cyst as well. MedWaves' proprietary microwave technology delivers predictable ablation performance not seen in other microwave and radiofrequency systems in the market, and shows its versatility. Additional benefits of microwave ablation are less pain and discomfort during percutaneous outpatient procedures, and clinical cases have shown to significantly reduce anesthetic dosage requirements when compared to radiofrequency ablation. The reduced anesthetic requirement could allow the physicians to treat larger populations of patients. Innovation continues at MedWaves. The company is developing smaller diameter microwave probes/antennae with focused microwave fields to destroy small metastatic lesions in liver, lung and other organs safely and effectively.

The energy-based therapy generates sales of $25 billion worldwide and growing at 11% per annum. Current worldwide tumor ablation generates sales of $250 million and growing at 25%-30% per annum. This accounts for only 5% m
