The 4th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound is the world's leading forum for sharing the latest translational and clinical advances in image-guided focused ultrasound. The symposium will spotlight breakthrough preclinical, translational and clinical research related to one of today’s most promising and innovative therapeutic technologies.
About Focused Ultrasound TechnologyFocused ultrasound is a revolutionary, early-stage therapeutic technology with the potential to transform the treatment of many serious medical disorders. This breakthrough technology uses ultrasonic energy guided by magnetic resonance or ultrasound imaging to treat tissue deep in the body without incisions or radiation.
Focused ultrasound is currently approved in the U.S. to treat uterine fibroids and bone metastases, and there are a growing number of clinical applications in various stages of research and development around the world, including Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, neuropathic pain, breast and prostate cancer, and brain tumors.
