Focused Ultrasound Clinical Trials

  • Jeffrey Elias, MD, a neurosurgeon at UVA, is exploring the potential of MRI-guided focused ultrasound to treat movement disorders. Fifteen individuals participated in his clinical trial and all of them are experiencing great results: “significant improvement” in their dominant hand tremor, substantial improvement in their quality of life, and reported essentially no residual disability from tremor at one year after treatment. 

    Read more about the results of this clinical trial and how you can join.
