Exciting stuff from American Veterinarian Magazine...

First Veterinary Patients Treated Using Focused Ultrasound

In November 2017, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation launched a program to study focused ultrasound therapy in animals. The first funded trials are now underway, with more studies in the pipeline.

Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine
One of the first trials to be funded by the foundation is taking place at Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech to treat sarcomas and mast cell tumors in dogs. Researchers are using a device called Echopulse (Theraclion) originally developed to treat breast and thyroid conditions in humans to investigate whether focused ultrasound therapy can be used to destroy tumors noninvasively and stimulate the dogs’ own immune system to fight cancer.

Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences
Meanwhile, doctors at Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences are examining how focused ultrasound can be used to speed wound healing. More specifically, the team, led by Ashish Ranjan, BVSc, PhD, is using focused ultrasound to treat hygromas in dogs and cats. These masses can become infected and painful and are typically very challenging to treat.

Here is a link to the VA study:

and here's one for the OK State Study:
