Focused Ultrasound (FUS) unit at Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli in Bologna.
Our unit, integrated within the Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging complex structure, is dedicated to the application and development of a new therapeutic technology based on the utilization of focused ultrasounds (“high intensity focused ultrasound” HIFU, or “focused ultrasound surgery” FUS). We also conduct research and development.
The treatment system installed at the Rizzoli, one of the first and most specialized centers in the field, represents the most advanced instrument of Magnetic Resonance guided Focused Ultrasounds (to learn more about the MRgFUS technology) available for clinical applications.
Our unit specializes in treating the diseases of the musculoskeletal system, especially:
- bone metastases, pain palliation and control of the tumoral mass;
- osteoma osteoide and other benign bone tumor;
