InSightec can now expand the use of its magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) therapy from treatment of uterine fibroids to pain palliation of bone metastases. Its product, called ExAblate 2000, can alleviate pain, has the potential to lower reliance on analgesics and can provide patients with the opportunity for improved quality of life, the company said of the new indication. It is estimated that 100,000 people in Europe are diagnosed with bone metastases every year, said the Haifa, Israel-based firm.
