Virtual Briefing on this Medical Innovation Primed for Congressional Support

Focused Ultrasound is a noninvasive therapy that can treat multiple conditions and address many more with further R&D funding. It has transformed care for patients suffering from conditions like Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, prostate cancer, uterine fibroids, and cancer pain. It is being explored for over 150 diseases, including various kinds of pain management, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, opioid addiction, and many cancers. For Veterans and military service members (half of whom struggle with pain management), women (75% of whom face uterine fibroids), and countless others facing limited treatment options for the most burdensome conditions costing $1.78 trillion per year, focused ultrasound offers tremendous promise.

This briefing will provide information on the established benefits of focused ultrasound, its potential in other areas of healthcare, and the value of additional research investment to advance this field of medicine.

Dr. Jessica Foley | Chief Scientific Officer, Focused Ultrasound Foundation

Beverly McGowan | Patient and Family Nurse Practitioner for Veterans
