Elesta

ITALY

Laser ablation driven by Ultrasound. Elesta was founded in 2008 as a joint venture of Esaote Spa, leading manufacturer of ultrasound equipment, and El.En. Spa, world leader in the production of laser systems, in order to develop, manufacture and market devices and systems for ultrasound guided thermoablative treatment. The Esaote and El.En joint venture was the result of the integration of two separate yet complementary lines of research: medical diagnostics and laser therapy.
By exploiting the skills and know-how of both companies, Elesta has developed a new integrated laser-ultrasound system designed mainly for thermoablation of primitive and secondary focal lesions of the liver and lungs, neuroendocrine tumours and thyroid nodules.
Mission
The company’s development strategy can be summarised as follows:
##research and development of new technologies and products in the field of ultrasound-guided mini-invasive laser treatments with special attention to the laser sources, delivery devices and dedicated software tools for LA planning and monitoring and verification of the treatment results;
##introduction of this treatment method into clinic-hospital departments and start-up of use of the technology;
##research for new fields of application of this method and evaluation of its effectiveness through clinical studies.
