Study indicates MRgFUS is a cost effective treatment for uterine fibroids
A comparison of MRgFUS to other treatment modalities for uterine fibroids shows favorable results for cost effectiveness and quality of life after the procedure.
Ability of focused ultrasound to open the blood brain barrier
This study demonstrates the ability of focused ultrasound to reversibly open the blood brain barrier (BBB) and allow pharmaceuticals to be selectively targeted on specific brain tissue regions, without causing other harmful effects to the targeted or surrounding tissues. The study also indicates that larger vessels within the brain tissue are more susceptible to the increased BBB permeability.
