Emerging Mechanisms Unlock Further Potential

Focused ultrasound has been used for years to heat and destroy tissue, but researchers have identified many new ways to utilize the technology to create a variety of effects within the body. As a platform technology, focused ultrasound’s 18 biomechanisms can be used alone or in combination, and their effects can vary based on the nature of the tissue (e.g., muscle, tumor or bone). 

The multitude of mechanisms - including tissue destruction, drug delivery, neuromodulation, immunomodulation and stem cell targeting - creates the possibility of treating a wide variety of disorders.

Along with updates to the Mechanisms of Action section of our website, a comprehensive White Paper is now available for download that includes illustrations for each mechanism.

All illustrations can be freely used by the community.

The chart below outlines the areas of medicine that each mechanism may impact. A more in-depth chart including specific diseases within these categories is available on our website
