Focused ultrasound is being investigated to treat over 90 conditions in a wide range of specialties.
Using ultrasound energy guided by real-time imaging, focused ultrasound treats tissue deep in the body without incisions or radiation. Focused ultrasound treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis, require no incisions, and can result in minimal discomfort and few complications, allowing for rapid recovery.
