Biaxial technology for ultrasound therapeutic devices in preclinical research for brain disorders

Focused ultrasound (FUS) is a clinical approach that aim at non-invasive treatment of brain disorders. There are however technical barriers for its adoption, in particular for clinical applications that require selective stimulation of brain areas for therapy. This is particularly critical when validating these applications preclinically, where the size of the effect should compatible with small animals. Our group recently patented a method for better focusing the effect of ultrasound transducers.
