Training

EDAP TMS gives high-end training to Ablatherm® HIFU and Sonolith® users from urology surgeon to OR staff and technicians. The Company is registered as an official training center (Training center registration number: 82.69.09204.69).

 

 

Ablatherm® HIFU training

Phase 1

The urology surgeon receives an EDAP TMS training manual prior to visiting one of the qualified Ablatherm® HIFU reference sites to observe the treatment process from start to finish with a certified proctor treating his or her own patients. The training material includes a training program, a training manual, a complete Ablatherm® HIFU literature review, an Ablatherm® HIFU user manual and a quizz.

 

Phase 2

The surgeon will treat his or her own patients in their hospital with the assistance of an EDAP TMS Applications Specialist.

 

Ablatherm® HIFU treatment simulator

EDAP TMS developed an Ablatherm® treatment simulation software to enable surgeons to get trained on the real Ablatherm® software in near-real conditions without any risk.

The full Sonolith® training is divided in 2 levels:

 

Level 1

This level is dedicated to training urologists, nurses and OR staff to set, start, and check the Sonolith® device. Patient prepping and installation on Sonolith® lithotripter is also included in this initial training phase.

 

Level 2

At this stage, the urologist or OR staff is trained to use imaging systems (X-ray and ultrasound) to locate the stone(s) and to use the Sonolith® generator to treat the patient.
