About Sonata System
The Sonata System, the next generation of Gynesonics’ fibroid treatment platform (the previous generation referred to as VizAblate), uses radiofrequency energy to ablate fibroids under intrauterine sonography guidance. The Sonata System, including the SMART Targeting Guide, enables the operator to target and ablate fibroids.
