Recently published focused ultrasound (FUS) research includes a comprehensive review of its use in treating the brain, including central neuropathic pain, essential tremor, Parkinsonian tremor, brain tumors, and temporary disruption of the blood-brain barrier for targeted drug delivery. Physicians and scientists in Europe also published collaborative reviews on using FUS for breast cancer treatment and uterine fibroids. Additionally, ultrasound contrast agents may enhance the FUS treatment of uterine fibroids.
