Ultrasonido Focalizado de Alta Intensidad - Sistema Allwhite Laser Hifu
The first investigations of HIFU for non-invasive treatments for abnormally fast heart rhythms were reported in the early 1940s. Extensive important early work was performed in the 1950s and 1960s by William Fry and Francis Fry at the University of Illinois and Carl Townsend, Howard White and George Gardner at the Interscience Research Institute of Champaign, Ill., culminating in clinical treatments of neurological disorders. In particular High Intensity ultrasound and ultrasound visualization was accomplished stereotaxically with a Cincinnati precision milling machine to perform accurate ablation of brain tumors. Until recently, clinical trials of HIFU for ablation were few (although significant work in hyperthermia was performed with ultrasonic heating), perhaps due to the complexity of the treatments and the difficulty of targeting the beam noninvasively. With recent advances in medical imaging and ultrasound technology, interest in HIFU ablation of tumors has increased.
El mecanismo es similar al uso de una lupa para enfocar la luz solar. El ultrasonido enfocado utiliza una lente acústica para concentrar múltiples haces de ultrasonido que se cruzan en un objetivo. Cada rayo individual atraviesa el tejido con poco efecto, pero en el punto focal donde convergen los rayos, la energía puede tener efectos térmicos o mecánicos útiles. HIFU generalmente se realiza con imágenes en tiempo real a través de ultrasonido o resonancia magnética para permitir la orientación y el monitoreo del tratamiento (incluido el seguimiento térmico con resonancia magnética).
High intensity focused ultrasound was first invented in the USA by Myron Medical Cosmetic Research Institution. Since its invention, many technology companies jumped on the concept to introduce it to the market. Allwhite Laser are one of a few to take on the project to research, design and develop the ultimate HIFU systems, making our Clarity? Hifu machines superior. We are able to do this due to our immense infrastructure. AW3 build much more complex systems such as the Regeneration Laser for Hospitals and Surgeons, so building the Clarity? HIFU systems is just second nature to our development team.
The purpose of these machines is to tighten the skin using high intensity focused ultrasound. The treatment is extremely effective in stimulating collagen production, removing lines and wrinkles to the face and neck .
Toda la tecnología HIFU aún no está clasificada como médica en muchos países, pero conseguir un verdadero resultado médico nos diferencia de todas las demás máquinas Hifu del mercado.
