  • New research further validates potential for focused ultrasound in treatment of Alzheimer's

    We congratulate the authors for this important work demonstrating that focused ultrasound (FUS) combined with microbubbles and applied in a scanning method across the entire brain reduced the number and volume of amyloid plaques and improved memory in the APP23 mouse model of Alzheimer's disease (AD).

    This work corroborates studies from Kullervo Hynynen, Isabelle Aubert, and colleagues at Sunnybrook Health Sci...
