Three interesting papers have recently been published about the use of focused ultrasound (FUS) in the brain. Could 3D MR thermometry play a key role in understanding and expanding the FUS treatment envelope? Does skull thickness matter? What parameters are needed to begin using low-frequency FUS in the brain?
