Register Now: Focused Ultrasound and Breast Cancer Webinar

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation will present a webinar addressing the potential impact of focused ultrasound throughout the treatment of breast cancer patients. Focused ultrasound can be used to treat early-stage breast cancer and is now in clinical trials to treat advanced disease. These clinical trials explore the potential benefits of various focused ultrasound mechanisms of action, such as thermal ablation, radiation sensitization, enhanced drug delivery, and immunomodulation.   Applications of focused ultrasound may increase local drug delivery to the tumor and improve patient care by decreasing the dose of systemic chemotherapies. Focused ultrasound can also act as a radiosensitizer, allowing for decreased doses of radiation. During survivorship, focused ultrasound neuromodulation could potentially help treat neuropathies as well as cognitive issues that resulted from prior therapies. Please join us Thursday, October 5, as two experts in the field discuss focused ultrasound’s potential for addressing breast cancer.
