Deadly brain hemorrhages are the subject of focused ultrasound research being performed by Stephen Monteith, M.D., a senior neurosurgery resident at the University of Virginia.

Monteith is one of nine grant recipients recently announced by the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation (NREF) of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). The prestigious NREF research fellowships provide training for neurosurgeons who are preparing for academic careers as clinician investigators.

Starting with its first thought-leaders’ meeting in March 2009, the FUS Foundation’s Brain Program has rapidly evolved into an international, multi-stakeholder initiative that is sponsoring research vital to the rapid advancement of MR-guided focused ultrasound.

Researchers are invited to submit oral and poster presentation abstracts for the 2nd International Symposium on MR-guided Focused Ultrasound. The online submission process, administered by SPLTrak, will open on May 15 and close on August 16, 2010.

Abstracts covering late breaking research will be accepted from September 1 through 15, but will not be listed in the symposium program.

For the first time in its ten-year history, the International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound will feature special sessions devoted to the latest developments in MR-guided focused ultrasound. The roster of speakers and poster presenters includes researchers from leading institutions around the world, making ISTU 2010 a meeting that will have a powerful impact on the emerging field of MR-guided focused ultrasound.

Below is a preliminary list of MR-guided FUS presenters. The complete ISTU 2010 scientific program can be found at:
