What is Focused Ultrasound?
Like a magnifying glass focusing beams of light on a single point, focused ultrasound concentrates ultrasound energy on a target in the body without harming healthy surrounding tissue.
What can Focused Ultrasound Treat?Focused ultrasound is being researched for over 100 diseases worldwide. While most are in the early stages, commercial treatment is now available in the US for essential tremor, tremor-dominant Parkinson's disease, uterine fibroids, bone metastases, and the prostate, and others are being treated elsewhere.
