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
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.
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.
