IceCure Medical’s IceSence3 has been used by US doctors since 2011 to remove benign breast lumps in a 10-minute ultrasound guided procedure that penetrates the tumor and engulfs it with ice. The system is being clinically tested over the next few years against small malignant breast tumors as well. The procedure is done in a doctor’s office, clinic or breast center, and the patient can get up and leave afterward with no recovery period or post-care.
