Newspaper Features California Man Who Underwent Focused Ultrasound Treatment for Brain Tumor


The Press Democrat, a newspaper in Sonoma County, California, featured a story on Dr. Peter Baginski who recently underwent the first successful noninvasive brain tumor treatment with focused ultrasound thermal ablation in Zurich, Switzerland. 

“For six hours, Dr. Peter Baginski lay wide awake in the tunnel of a magnetic resonance imaging machine in a Zurich hospital while sporadic pulses of focused ultrasound penetrated his skull and slowly burned a hole through the inch-long tumor deep in his brain.

Baginski, who already had beaten the odds by surviving five years with a cancer that usually kills in 13 months, became the first and only person to undergo successful focused-ultrasound treatment for a brain tumor.”
