Non-invasive Ultrasound Treatments for Cancer, Parkinson’s Tremor, and Alzheimer’s

When we hear “Ultrasound,” the layperson typically thinks of baby sonograms.

Ultrasound has been widely used in healthcare for diagnostics, but lately it has also been used for non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments for tumors and other major illnesses. FDA-approved treatments are currently available for Uterine Fibroids, Bone Metastases, Prostate Cancer, Essential Tremor (Parkinson’s), etc.

Also, there are a number of clinical and pre-clinical trials underway for treatment of other diseases, including Liver and Pancreatic Cancer, Brain Tumor, Renal Hypertension, Glaucoma, Breast Cancer, Depression, Coma, etc.

During this presentation, we will learn about cutting-edge Ultrasound-based therapeutic treatments, how they work, and state-of-the-art research.
