Abstract

Pediatric applications of focused ultrasound (FUS) therapy will require large cohorts of patients to prove safety and efficacy to both government regulatory bodies and health care insurers. However, it is difficult for single institutions to recruit enough patients to meet these requirements. Incorporation of a data registry of patient information including demographics, symptomatology, medication, imaging, treatment plans, intraoperative thermometry and outcomes will allow rapid accrual of cases between multiple centers, demonstrating safety and efficacy, and enabling widespread implementation of new FUS procedures. Incorporation of treatment guidelines will ensure consistent treatment between centers, enabling comparative studies with existing standards of care.
