During a June 9 workshop hosted by the Foundation’s Liver and Pancreas Program, 20 experts in the usage and research of focused ultrasound for liver ablation met to solidify views and formulate treatment recommendations.

Attendees, who included clinicians, scientists and industry representatives, developed a definition of “the clinical unmet need in the management of liver tumors." They also mapped out recommended structures for pilot and pivotal clinical trials and technical specifications for a liver treatment device. This information is expected to be published as either a white paper or a peer-reviewed article.
