An interesting book has made the market, by John Grisham, that deals with the medical audience and technology. Focused ultrasound, lightly put, has the potential to extend a patient’s life in a less invasive way. How you ask? Well, what Focused ultrasound does is use the beams replicating a magnifying lens in a focused region in the body to treat and kill tumors. It has already been used clinically for Parkinson’s, and is approved in the United States to treat uterine fibroids, reduce pain from bone metastases and treat the prostate. The book is free if you want to own one and read yourself. Otherwise, I am providing this link for more information: http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/646667/?sc=rsmn
