Today, healthcare innovation centers on advancing breakthrough treatments to improve patient outcomes. Focused ultrasound is a revolutionary, noninvasive therapy that can treat multiple diseases and has the potential to address many more with further R&D funding.

Focused ultrasound has transformed care for patients suffering from serious conditions like Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, prostate cancer, uterine fibroids, and cancer pain. It is being explored for more than 150 other diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, depression, opioid addiction, and various cancers. For Veterans and servicemembers (half of whom struggle with pain management), women (75% of whom face uterine fibroids), and countless others facing limited treatment options for conditions costing $1.78 trillion per year, focused ultrasound offers tremendous promise.

Aimed at US congressional leaders and their staff, this briefing educated about the established benefits of focused ultrasound, its potential in other areas of healthcare, and the value of additional research investment to advance this field of medicine.
