CMDA is a diagnostic imaging group in the region of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands and comprises 22 diagnostic centers. It represents the first HIFU powerhouse offering dedicated MR guided HIFU and ultrasound guided HIFU: HIFU treatments cover uterine fibroids (myomas) and uterine adenomyosis, osteoid osteoma for patients with benign bone lesions, essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease and prostate cancer. With the advent of Echopulse, HIFU is now also used to treat thyroid nodules and breast fibroadenoma.
“We are passionate about offering non-invasive treatment options to preserve our patients’ quality of life. We have seen rapidly growing interest in our technologies in gynecology, neurology and urology and are convinced that Echopulse® completes our HIFU based-treatment offering and will drive our future development”, says Antonio Alomar, CEO of CMDA and ResoFus Alomar.
“Within only a few months, I have developed an important activity in Zaragoza and am pleased to be able to bring my experience to patients in Barcelona” says Prof. Dr. Pedro Pablo Ortíz Remacha, endocrinologist, professor at University of Zaragoza and owner of the Zaragoza echotherapy center.
“We are extremely pleased to see an MR-HIFU provider take the next step and offer both US –guided and MR-guided HIFU. The HIFU community represents a significant market and represents almost one thousand centers within Europe and the world.
