Dr. Nir Lipsman is featured in Maclean’s discussing MRI-guided focused ultrasound delivery of chemotherapy to a common form of brain tumour in children. Researchers and physicians at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) are the first in the world to use MRI-guided focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier and deliver chemotherapy in Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an aggressive and terminal pediatric brain tumour. The first pediatric patient recently successfully underwent the procedure as part of a safety and feasibility clinical trial in children with this tumour.
