Impact of brain regions on treatment of essential tremor with focused ultrasound thalamotomy


  • Efficacy of treatment of essential tremor using magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) thalamotomy correlates with lesion location and size.

Why this matters

  • The identification of brain regions for optimal MRgFUS thalamotomy treatment may improve treatment outcomes and help prevent adverse events using this new minimally invasive therapy.
