Neuroscience Grand Rounds: High Intensity Focus Ultrasound (HIFU) and Applications for Movement Disorders
High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) promises a number of advantages over conventional neurosurgery. It offers greater precision, as the intervention can be imagined in real-time. Because it is noninvasive, HIFU is not subject to tissue shift, which may occur during surgery due to tissue excision.
During this conference Dr. Zucker will assist participants understand the technology of HIFU and it’s interactions with tissue.
