Focused Ultrasound for Parkinson's Disease Featured in Practical Neurology


Focused ultrasound treatment for Parkinson’s disease was featured as the cover story in the December issue of Practical Neurology.

The article consisted of a Q&A with Dr. Binit B. Shah, MD, Assistant Professor, Neurology, Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Division at University of Virginia.

“In terms of efficacy, we found quite a significant reduction in 14 of the 15 patients where there was over a 50 percent reduction in the rating scales, as we measured them using the clinical rating scale in tremor. Some of the patients had almost near resolution of tremor that’s been persistent for a year to two years.”
