ModìLite is the ECHOLASER Thermal Ablation treatment for neck lesions, namely benign thyroid nodules.
The name of the treatment contains in a single word the application area (the neck, “Modì” was the nickname of the Tuscan painter, Amedeo Modigliani, who portrayed female subjects with very long, slim necks) and “Lite”, which on one hand refers to the lightweight and micro-invasiveness of the treatment, and on the other, the therapeutic source (Light, therefore Laser).
The name ModìLite marks the difference between the procedure performed with ECHOLASER (micro-invasiveness and multi-fiber approach in a single system) from the other thermal ablation techniques.
Preservation of the healthy tissue and the organ function
Highly predictable and repeatable coagulation volume
Use of fine, non-traumatic needles for neck structures
No general anaesthesia
Short treatment duration
No scars on the neck
Not require a life-long hormone replacement therapy
Rapid recovery with no post-treatment pain

How it Works?
Modìlite consists of the percutaneous insertion of optical fibres (1 or 2 depending on the size of the nodule), and the delivery of laser energy for several minutes, which heats the tissues until they are destroyed.
Subsequently, the progressive reduction of the volume of the thyroid nodule (reduction of at least > 50% compared to the basal volume at the one-year follow-up) induced by the natural reduction mechanisms of the necrotic tissues of the human body leads to the disappearance of the compressive symptoms and aesthetic damage to the neck.
The planning of the treatment, the insertion of the needles and the monitoring are all carried out under ultrasound guidance. To facilitate the insertion maneuver and plan the best positioning of the needles in the lesion, ECHOLASER employs:
- Dedicated multi-applicator Guiding Systems for ultrasound probes
- Planning Software in the ultrasound unit that allows physicians to choose among the various treatment possibilities, the most suitable and safest for each specific case, and verifies the correct positioning of the needles inside the nodule.
- A single ModìLite treatment leads to a significant and persistent reduction in the volume of the thyroid nodule and improves local symptoms without any changes to the thyroid function.
