The Sperling Medical Group offers a new MRI-guided noninvasive thalamotomy using a breakthrough technology called Neuravive. Thanks to brain mapping done by our powerful magnet and specialized software, Neuravive uses 1024 beams of ultrasound energy all pinpointed on the nucleus of the thalamus that is responsible for the tremor. Each application of focused ultrasound energy is called a sonication. A series of tiny overlapping sonications gradually destroys the targeted area. Since the Neuravive procedure is done inside the MRI “bore” (tunnel), high resolution imaging monitors the treatment. When it is over, the result is an immediate and significant reduction in tremors.
