Study Shows Use of MRI-Guided Focused Ultrasound can Treat Essential Tremor
A New Treatment For Tremors
Hands that shake, or what doctors call "essential tremor" (meaning the shaking is not caused by an illness, like Parkinson's), is a part of aging for 7 million Americans.
The Food and Drug Administration has just approved a new treatment: focused ultrasound, in which doctors use MRI to locate the precise spot in the brain's thalamus responsible for the tremors. They then direct ultrasound waves to interfere with the cells that cause the trembling.
A study showed the method decreased patient disability by 62%, making eating, drinking, and getting dressed easier.
