US AND MRI PARTNER UP TO TREAT CANCER

This is a topic I have talked about in the past.  It is exciting.We are now exploring ways to locate, and treat tumors using the MRI machine and US.  The MRI can locate the lesions, and US can treat them.  The secret?  Nano particles which oscillate and release kinetic energy in the form of heat in response to ultrasound.  This thermal energy can destroy a tumor, and spare the surrounding normal tissues.

Thermal ablation with magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) is a noninvasive technique for treating fibroids and cancer. New research from UC Davis shows that combining the technique with chemotherapy can allow complete destruction of tumors in mice.
