InSightec reports first North American MRgFUS patient

Israeli focused-ultrasound developer InSightec said that Mount Sinai Hospital and University Health Network (UHN) Joint Department of Medical Imaging in Toronto have performed the first noninvasive surgery using the vendor's MR-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) technology.

The procedure was conducted as part of a feasibility study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of MRgFUS for easing pain caused by bone metastases in patients for whom other treatment options are neither effective nor feasible, according to the Haifa, Israel-based firm.
