Sonolith i-sys

Integrated lithotripter : power, accuracy and user friendliness at your fingertip

Description

Designed with the patient in mind

The unique design of the DIATRON IV generator adapts to any situation and to any patient:
  • Treatment depth up to 210 mm adapted to obese population
  • Easy reach of lower ureteric stones
  • 290 mm wide aperture for patient comfort and diffusion of pain at patient skin
  • 80° angle of aperture for larger acoustic window
  • Flexible silicone membrane inflates and deflates to accomodate all types of patients: pediatrics, bariatrics, etc

The appropriate generator position

The motorized movements of the generator allow easy pinpoint positionning:
  • to find the best acoustic window
  • to avoid gas pockets
  • to treat from the side, from below or from any intermediate position to adapt to the patient and his clinical condition

X-Ray isocentric robotized movements

The system is equipped with a high-power 15 kW generator and high resolution 23 or 31 cm Image Instensifier with latest technology 1Kx1K camera to image every patient. Some clinical situations require lateral projections, other transverse ones. Thanks to its motorized isocentric movements, in both projections, the focal point is always maintained in the center of the field of view.

A connected platform

Healthcare providers face new challenges to get the most out of new technology. The Sonolith® i-sys is DICOM 3.0 compatible thereby allowing free-flowing transfer of data and images between devices and the hospital server.

Clinical versatility

With a three-side access endo-urological table, a carbon top and a full range of accessories, the Sonolith® i-sys doubles up as a true endo-urological workstation.

Remote controls and safety

In order to minimize exposure for the medical staff, Sonolith® i-sys can be entirely controlled from a mobile remote console behind protective panel or from a remote control desktop in an adjacent room. All steps of the ESWL treatment can be operated remotely: patient database, X-Ray, C-arm movements, table displacement and treatment parameters settings. In order to minimize exposure for the medical staff, Sonolith® i-sys can be entirely controlled from a mobile remote console behind protective panel or from a remote control desktop in an adjacent room.

Treatment
Stone localization and treatment

The stereotactic lithotripsy

The end of the in-line vs. outline debate:

  • Natural, easy and unrestrained stone exploration
  • Smooth and precise localizatin with no movement limitation
  • Ability to seek the best acoustic window
  • Radiation free treatment
  • Real-time follow-up during treatment

Stone Locking System

Scan 
the patient with ultrasound in hand and/or with robotized X-Ray

Touch
the stone displayed on screen. The stone is automatically positionned at the focal point by the motorized patient support

Treat
with the desired parameters for fine and effective stone fragmentation

Track
in real-time the stone fragmentation with the ultrasound probe on its support or with X-Ray. Always stay on target with the 3D reconstruction

Electroconductivity
Patented electroconductive technology

Electroconductive technology, the latest innovation in extracorporeal lithotripsy was developed and patented by EDAP TMS in partnership with the French Medical Research Institute (INSERM). This technology combines the efficacy and fragmentation power of the original Electrohydraulic technology together with the accuracy and precision of the Piezoelectric source

Power and accuracy


generatorThanks to the development of an exclusive and patented electrode encapsulated in a highly conductive solution (Electrolyte), the shockwave is generated at the same geometric point and at the same intensity from one firing to the next. The shock waves are then focused by the ellipsoidal reflector, specifically designed to harness benefits afforded by the Electroconductive technology benefits. The full power of the shock wave is transferred directly to the focal point F2 to guarantee superior fragmentation power and quality.

Reliable and safe

The Exclusive Automatic Pressure Regulator measures and adjusts in real time the pressure at the focal point. This system ensures consistency shock after shock so every patient benefits from the same treatment quality, month after month.

Universal efficacy on all stone types and sizes

focal volumeThe physical features of the Electroconductive technology offer a great flexibility in the choice of therapeutic protocol:
  • Extensive settings range
  • Variable energy density
  • Variable focal volume

The finest fragmentation

The unique Electroconductive technology (ECL) is endowed with just the right combination of high pressure and focal size adaptability to pulverize stones into fragments small enough to be eliminated naturally. The comparison of residual fragments after the in-vitro fragmentation of a phantom stone (left) using an electromagnetic shockwave generator (middle) and the ECL source provides clear evidence of finer fragmentation... achieved with fewer shocks.
