Exablate Neuro

Exablate Neuro

In July 2016, the Exablate Neuro from Insightec became the first MRI-guided focused ultrasound device to received FDA approval for treatment of essential tremor. As MD+DI reported last year, the device works by using focused ultrasound to eliminate problematic brain tissue. The technology allows patients who have not experienced relief from medication an option for noninvasive treatment instead of brain surgery.
