A story pitched and facilitated by the Focused Ultrasound Surgery Foundation was broadcast on the CBS Evening News on June 12, 2011.

Acknowledging that focused ultrasound could be one of the biggest medical advances since the scalpel, the report included interviews with uterine fibroid patient Stephanie Small and University of Virginia radiologist Alan Matsumoto, MD.

Commenting on future uses of focused ultrasound, Brad Wood, MD, of the NIH Center for Interventional Oncology, said "We will see a day in the coming five years where this treatment is playing a major role for the cancer patient."
