The Focused Ultrasound Field is Growing
Every year we survey stakeholders to assess and report on where the field of focused ultrasound has been, where it is now, and where it is going.
The past year has witnessed tremendous growth. There was a remarkable increase of 30% in patients treated in 2015 compared to 2014. These treatments were conducted at 20% more commercial sites than the previous year. Thanks in part to the recent US FDA approval of two systems to treat the prostate, we expect a continued increase in US commercial sites this year.
The establishment of three new companies around the world affirms confidence for success.
This report helps researchers and industry identify possible collaborators, assists patients in locating treatment sites, and illuminates the potential of the technology for reporters, investors, and other stakeholders.
The key statistics and trends identified in the 2016 Report are compiled from data gathered in 2015.
