Company Overview

MEDSONIC LTD was founded in 2005, and is based in Limassol, CYPRUS. The company specializes in the design of MRI-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) robotic systems for various applications (brain, thyroid, breast, prostate, liver and kidney). The company produces also MRI-guided HIFU system for animal experiments (large and small animals). MEDSONIC produces also MRI-compatible HIFU transducers and MRI-compatible phantoms (brain, ribs, bone, and motion). The research team of MEDSONIC was awarded so far several research grants (BRAINSONIC, ULTRASTROKE, SONOPLAQUE, PROFUS, DIGITRA) in the area of HIFU. MEDSONIC has a very strong equipment infrastructure, which is valuated close to 1 million Euros.

MEDSONIC provides services in the area of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) guided by MRI:

MEDSONIC develops all kinds of high intensity ultrasonic transducers (focused or unfocused). Diameter range 20-100 mm, frequency range 0.4-5 MHz. The transducers are MRI compatible.

Manufucturing of 3D designs using ABS. Maximum size: 35 cm. Just send by email your STL drawing and we will manufacture it for you using the STRATASYS FDM 400 3D printer. email:

MEDSONIC develops agar-based phantoms that mimic the ultrasonic properties of soft tissue. The acoustic attenuation is 0.5 dB/cm-MHz and the acoustic absorption is 0.4 dB/cm-MHz.
