ife threatening neurological deficits from stroke; to alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and chronic pain; and to address a host of other disorders ranging from heart disease to diabetes.

The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, does not require general anesthesia or incisions, results in minimal discomfort and few complications, and allows for rapid recovery.

Focused ultrasound is the result of the integration of two technologies: high intensity focused ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. Focused ultrasound technology is analogous to using a magnifying glass to focus multiple beams of light on a point and burn a hole in a leaf. With focused ultrasound, multiple intersecting beams of ultrasound energy are focused with extreme accuracy on a target deep in the body as small as a grain of rice.

Where each individual ultrasound beam passes through the tissue, there is no effect. But where the beams intersect in the body, the focused energy has a cumulative effect, enabling precise heating and ablation of tissue, highly targeted drug delivery, or liquefaction of blood clots. Magnetic resonance imaging is used to visualize normal anatomy and abnormal structures within the body, to localize the tissue to be treated, to guide and control the treatment interactively in real time, and to evaluate the effectiveness of therapy.
