- Published: February 21, 2018
Recently, founder and chairman of the Foundation Neal F. Kassell, MD, spoke with Melanie Crandall, head of content at tech communications firm Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, to discuss why CES 2018 was such a great venue to showcase focused ultrasound technology and where he thinks the field is headed, particularly in regards to the treatment of essential tremor.
You were recently at CES with John Grisham. Was this your first time at the show and how was the technology received?
Yes, it was our first time. We were somewhat anxious going into this, as we are definitely not consumer electronics. But our expectations of a positive reception were wildly exceeded. The response from show attendees was nothing short of astonishing. People came by the booth eager for more information and expressing enthusiasm about the potential of the technology. Attention from the senior leadership of CES was amazing. The panels we were part of and participating in Gary’s Book Club with John Grisham were incredible experiences. On a scale of 0 to 10, I would rate it a 16.
