UVA trial update
The UVA trial, which is still in progress, is the first in the world to evaluate the safety and initial efficacy of MR-guided focused ultrasound in treating essential tremor. Ten patients have been treated since the trial began in February 2011; five more will undergo the procedure before the study ends later this year. Primary investigator, W. Jeffrey Elias, MD, is scheduled to report preliminary findings on October 2 at the 2011 Congress of Neurological Surgeons meeting in Washington, DC.
