Emprint™ Zone Chart app

The Emprint™ HP ablation zone app puts the ablation setting details you need in the palm of your hand. With comprehensive ex vivo and in vivo ablation zone reference values, you can create tailored ablation zones9 with confidence.

Available for both Android and iPhone users.

Clinical Evidence

Multi-institutional analysis of outcomes for Thermosphere™ microwave ablation treatment of colorectal liver metastases: the SMAC study

Conclusion: T-MWA is a safe and effective treatment for CLM with no biliary complications reported in more than 200 ablated lesions. LTPFS is affected by lesion size at ablation, number of lesions, minimal ablation margin, and intra-segment progression. CBA modifies kinetics growth of the lesions but deteriorates ablation margins and does not significantly impact local tumor progression-free survival.

Evaluation of microwave ablation of liver malignancy with enabled constant spatial energy control to achieve a predictable spherical ablation zone

Study design: A single-center, retrospective cohort study comparing 48 subjects with hepatic tumors (total 56 tumors) treated with Emprint™ ablation system with Thermosphere™ technology to subjects who underwent conventional high-frequency MWA (n=20) or low-frequency MWA (n=20).

The Emprint™ HP ablation generator gives you more volume, with a single antenna.

Using our patented Thermosphere™ technology, the Emprint™ HP ablation generator enables a minimally invasive procedure with:

  • Large ablations, with up to 40 percent more volume compared to the original Emprint™ ablation system10
  • Proven spherical shape,11-17 giving you flexibility in antenna placement approach5
  • Consistent ablative margins greater than 5 mm5,†
  • Scalability, allowing you to create both small and large ablation zones10

Predictability. Specificity. Large Ablation Zones.

EmprintTM HP Ablation System

Succeful management of non- resectable liver tumors is about more than what you remove. It's about what you leave behind too.

The EmprintTM HP Ablation System supports your journey from careful planning to predictable success.

Take less healthy liver, help preserve their future6,7

Successful management of nonresectable liver tumors is about more than what you remove — it’s about what you leave behind, too. The Emprint™ ablation system enables a minimally invasive procedure that provides immediate, repeatable results4 and can help lower the chance of recurrence.8 This procedure can also be combined with additional therapies and help you give your patients a more comprehensive treatment.6

Greater Coverage. Fewer Antennas. 

Less Collateral Damage.
