"MRgFUS has the potential to be an important interventional tool which has low morbidity and high efficacy."

"This sort of focused meeting is how MRI started a generation ago. This could be as big or bigger. For stroke thrombolysis it could be the most important meeting in the country. The pieces are coming together for the breakthrough techniques of the next decade. MRgFUS 2008 will be the place where critical mass is achieved and the solutions start to take real shape."
-- William C. Culp, M.D., Professor of Radiology & Surgery, Chief of Interventional Radiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
"MRgFUS is an extremely important development. As a neuroradiologist, I have a major interest in stroke. MRgFUS could totally revolutionize the treatment of acute stroke by liquefying the thrombus. The MRgFUS 2008 meeting is very important for issues such as reimbursement. The more users of MRgFUS we have the sooner we will get category I codes for reimbursement."
-- William G. Bradley, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.R., Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiology, University of California San Diego Medical Center
"MRgFUS is already very important in some areas of medicine, and can
become very important in neurosurgery because of the minimally invasiveness
of this tool. MRgFUS could be used in neurooncology, neurovascular and
functional neurosurgical cases. One of the most attractive features is the
possibility to eliminate the need of radiation therapy and its unwelcome
side effects. MRgFUS 2008 will be a very helpf
