US Chamber of Commerce: FUS as Disruptive Innovation


In two recent blog posts, the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation explored focused ultrasound’s potential to transform surgery and the future of medicine.

“Taken together, FUS is a perfect example of how innovation can disrupt entire industries (for the better) and how data is helping make it happen.”

The first story, entitled Operation Disruption: New Ultrasound Technology Means Surgery With No Cuts, offers an explanation of the technology and its current status on the path to widespread adoption. An example of disruptive innovation, focused ultrasound threatens to shake up the healthcare status quo for providers and payers.

Part two, Big Data, Tear Down This Wall, delves deeper into the disruptive landscape, exploring ways that industry and the Foundation are working together to hurdle regulatory barriers.
