Could MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound
Be Right for You?
MR-guided focused ultrasound is approved for the treatment of essential tremor that cannot be controlled with medication. Approval is for treatment of one side of the brain only; you must be at least 22 years old. It is also available for tremor-dominant Parkinson’s disease. Approval is for treatment of one side of the brain only; you must be at least 30 years old.
As always, talk to your doctor about whether this treatment option may be effective for your unique symptoms and condition. You should have a detailed conversation with your physician regarding the risks and benefits of treatment options prior to treatment.
AdventHealth Celebration has contracted with Insightec, the device manufacturer, to provide its patients with assistance in taking the required first steps to access the MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment, including assistance with initial screening, setting up a meeting with the treatment team, scheduling a CT scan and, for qualifying patients, coordination of the MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment at AdventHealth Celebration.
