Insightec’s Exablate Neuro is the first and only Focused Ultrasound platform for treating essential tremor, tremor-dominant Parkinson’s disease, and neuropathic pain.
The disruptive technology can deliver up to 1,024 ultrasound waves across the skull to precisely ablate a target deep in the brain. This incision-free treatment is performed in the MRI suite typically on an outpatient basis.
During a Focused Ultrasound treatment, the treating physician sits at a computer in the MRI control room, using a mouse instead of a scalpel, to expertly create a lesion.
Treatment is guided by MR imaging for patient-specific treatment planning, real-time thermal feedback, and continuous treatment monitoring.
