FORTUNE has published two fantastic articles about the potential of focused ultrasound.
The article “This is Your Brain on Surgical Sound Waves”will appear in the June 30th print issue. It chronicles the early development of MR-guided focused ultrasound and highlights its use for prostate cancer, brain surgery and drug delivery.
FORTUNE’s companion online story “Five Ways Focused Ultrasound is Changing Medicine” covers the technology’s applications for non-invasive surgery, relieving pain, opening the blood-brain barrier, cleaning arteries and treating hypertension.
As FORTUNE reports, the technology is trapped in a “slow-moving medical system” that requires advocates like the Focused Ultrasound Foundation to speed progress.
