Abstract

In past years non-invasive clinical applications of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound for the treatment of neurological disorders have been hampered by technical limitations that today have been finally overcome. In 2015, for the first time in the world, the very first treatments have been performed in Italy by the use of an affordable 1.5T magnetic resonance unit. The clinical results obtained to date and all the future possible applications are very promising and pave the way towards safe and effective treatment options once unthinkable.
