Chase Koch, Neal KassellNeal F. Kassell, MD, the Founder and Chairman of the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, recently sat down (virtually) with Chase Koch, the President of Koch Disruptive Technologies, for an in-depth discussion about the field of focused ultrasound and how their organizations are working together to revolutionize therapy with this highly disruptive technology.

On July 9, 2020, we launched a podcast and the first in a three-part blog series that was edited and condensed from their conversation. 

Listen: “FUS Foundation and Koch Disruptive Technologies Discuss Advancing Focused Ultrasound”

The first blog discusses KDT and Koch Industries, why they are excited about focused ultrasound, and their message to the community at large.
