CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Focused Ultrasound Surgery Foundation is pleased to announce the convening of the first major International Symposium dedicated to the current and future use of magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) -- a breakthrough therapeutic technology for treating a variety of serious medical conditions including cancer, neurological disorders, and uterine fibroids.

The MRgFUS 2008 International Symposium, to be held on October 6th and 7th in Washington, DC, will feature more than 75 leading clinicians, scientists, and engineers from over 12 countries who are contributing to the rapid advancement of this field. The multidisciplinary program will span the latest research, current and future clinical applications, and practical issues related to adoption including best practices, training, and reimbursement. The program will be of interest to individuals from academia, clinical treatment facilities, industry, and funding bodies.

"This is a landmark event in the evolution of focused ultrasound surgery," said Dr. Neal F. Kassell, professor of neurosurgery at the University of Virginia and Chairman of the Foundations' board. "Although there has been significant work done around the world in the field for a number of years, it isn't until you see it all come together like this that you begin to understand the true potential of this technology to meet the challenges of modern medicine with less invasive and more effective treatment."
