The focused ultrasound neurosurgery group at Ohio State University used the Foundation’s Kranion system to create a new metric that predicts temperature rise during brain treatments. The study, which measured the relationship between skull parameters and treatment efficiency, used Kranion to evaluate data from 28 patients. Combining the energy loss from incident angles with skull thickness produced a new penetration metric called the “beam index.” The Kranion software was able to accurately estimate skull thickness and create corresponding treatment parameters.
