Focused Ultrasound Technology Offers Novel Path to Deliver Drugs to the Brain

Over the last three decades, focused ultrasound (FUS) technology research at the Brigham has integrated physics and math into medical research, created scalpel-free surgical alternates for patients with uterine fibroids, bone metastases, prostate cancer and essential tremors and Parkinson’s tremors. Researchers and clinicians are now wielding the tool to deliver gene therapies straight to the brain, bypassing the protective blood-brain barrier.
