FUS and the Brain on Cover of Health Management


health management cover2Focused Ultrasound and The Brain is the featured cover story of this month’s Health Management journal. Foundation Chairman Neal F. Kassell, MD, shares his thoughts on why focused ultrasound is a promising treatment option for brain conditions, which diseases might best respond to focused ultrasound, and the challenges that may block its widespread adoption.

“It doesn’t take an enormous leap of faith to appreciate that if you can treat something deep in the brain in an awake patient, through the intact scalp and skull with extreme precision and accuracy…it will also work more easily for things outside the brain in more forgiving locations, such as breast or liver tumours,” says Dr. Kassell in the feature story.

Health Management is a European-based journal that covers management, innovations, new techniques, and technologies that simplify healthcare managers’ decisions and help produce more efficient outcomes.
