Description:

Focused ultrasound is a revolutionary technology with the potential to change medicine and transform the treatment of brain diseases. The innovative procedure aims to do away with traditional invasive brain surgeries and instead relies on precision imaging and ultrasound energy to reach areas deep within the brain for the treatment, or investigation of safety and efficacy in a number of indications including; essential tremor, Alzheimer’s disease, severe depression, and more.

At Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, researchers have advanced focused ultrasound technology, pioneering applications and leading ground-breaking clinical trials to provide new therapies for brain diseases, in some cases where none existed before. In this CAN Public Lecture, Sunnybrook’s world-leading experts will share the latest advances in focused ultrasound — from device development, to biological insights and clinical translation.
