The Orion system* uses machine learning to create patient specific treatment plans. It delivers targeted treatment through focal laser ablation, minimizing the impact to healthy tissue and preserving urinary and sexual function.
Treatment plans are synced with a workstation with minimal footprint. Laser energy is provided by the workstation, which displays tissue temperatures and treatment progress in real-time.
A laser needle and sensor are inserted into the target tissue under ultrasound guidance. The laser needle gently heats tissue causing coagulation necrosis. Requiring only local anesthesia, patients experience minimal to no downtime.

Using a patient’s MRI and biopsy information, Avenda Health algorithms predict cancer margins.
A treatment plan is created to inform a urologist where to insert laser fibers to ablate the cancer.
