Our research is in focused ultrasound and MR-guided focused ultrasound. Most of our work is in brain applications of focused ultrasound and includes both basic science and engineering of the image guidance. Our brain work can be split into application areas: treatment of movement disorders in humans, blood-brain barrier opening in preclinical models, and neuromodulation in preclinical models and moving toward human application. We also have some ongoing work in improving MR thermometry in the treatment of body cancers in humans... A leader in the biomedical revolution, Stanford Medicine has a long tradition of leadership in pioneering research, creative teaching protocols and effective clinical therapies... Our lab studies novel therapies of focused ultrasound, a versatile technology with many applications, including treating neurological diseases and cancer. We use image guidance to better plan, monitor, and evaluate treatment efficacy as well as to understand basic science..
