The ExAblate (also known as ExAblate 2000) is a non-invasive medical device manufactured by InSightec, a company based in Haifa, Israel with its US office in Dallas, TX. The ExAblate uses MRI guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery (MRgFUS) technology, which combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with focused ultrasound. The MRI is used to visualize anatomy, aid in planning the treatment, and monitoring temperatures and thermal dose in real time during the treatment. This thermal feedback allows the physician to control and adjust the treatment in real time to ensure that the targeted tumor is fully treated and surrounding tissue is spared. Focused ultrasound is capable of ablating tumors inside the body without the need for an incision.
