Transcranial MR-guided high intensity focused ultrasound for non-invasive functional neurosurgery


Werner, B; Morel, A; Zadicario, E; Jeanmonod, D; Martin, E (2009). Transcranial MR-guided high intensity focused ultrasound for non-invasive functional neurosurgery. In: 9th International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound-ISTU 2009, American Institute of Physics, 24 September 2009 - 26 September 2009, 101-104.

Abstract

While the development of transcranial MR-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound has been driven mainly by applications for tumor ablation this new intervention method is also very attractive for functional neurosurgery due to its non-invasiveness, the absence of ionizing radiation and the closed-loop intervention control by MRI. Here we provide preliminary data to demonstrate the clinical feasibility, safety and precision of non-invasive functional neurosurgery by transcranial MR-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound.
