SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:BSDM) (Company or BSD) (www.BSDMedical.com), a leading provider of medical systems that treat cancer and benign diseases using heat therapy, today announced that the Company’s MicroThermX Microwave Ablation System (MicroThermX) technology was presented in a session at the 6th Annual Symposium on Clinical Interventional Oncology (CIO) held in Miami.
“Interventional radiologists looking to expand their practices often consider interventional oncology as the next logical step forward. We are delighted that the benefits of microwave ablation and the MicroThermX technology were presented to this targeted audience. BSD held a well-attended workshop and had good traffic at the MicroThermX booth”
The 2014 CIO conference was attended by more than 500 physicians, scientists, researchers and health professionals from the U.S. and 30 international countries. The MicroThermX technology was featured in an educational session discussing the use of ablation technologies in the treatment of soft-tissue tumors that occur in liver, lung, and kidneys.
“Our MicroThermX technology was highlighted at this leading industry conference that focuses on some of the most viable and sought-after treatments in interventional oncology,” said Brian Ferrand, V.P., Domestic Sales. “Interventional radiologists looking to expand their practices often consider interventional oncology as the next logical step forward. We are delighted that the benefits of microwave ablation and the MicroThermX technology were presented to this targeted audience. BSD held a well-attended workshop and had good traffic at the MicroThermX booth,” added Mr. Ferrand. “We are making strong progress on increasing our brand awareness in the interventional oncology marketplace.”
Microwave ablation has multiple advantages over radiofrequency ablation (RFA). These advantages include the ability to accommodate multiple applicators, thereby increasing the flexibility of its use, and the ability to ablate large volumes of tissue in shorter periods of time. The MicroThermX System features ease of mobility and compact size, which is smaller than competing systems.
