Aims and scope

Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound encompasses all aspects of therapeutic ultrasound, namely, the stimulus, inhibition, or modification of tissue function or structure via insonification. This open access journal focuses on translational and clinical research, helping to accelerate the adoption of therapeutic ultrasound as a clinical tool.

Featured review: MRI-guided ultrasound for treating cerebral vasospasm

Cerebral vasospasm is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), causing delayed neurological deficits in as many as one third of cases. This literature review by Bonow et. al. supports their hypothesis that transcranially-delivered ultrasound may have the ability to induce therapeutic cerebral vasodilation and may one day be used therapeutically in the context of SAH.

Prof Wladyslaw M Gedroyc

Prof Gedroyc is a consultant radiologist at St Mary's Hospital and Imperial College Healthcare London and is a specialist in MRI and intervention. He has been a pioneer of the clinical application of MR guided focused ultrasound for 14 years and has been instrumental in the development of many of the current clinical applications in this field.

Robert Muratore (1)

Dr Robert Muratore

Dr Robert Muratore is founder of a science consulting company, Quantum Now LLC, which advises organizations on biomedical engineering issues including imaging, ultrasonic therapy, and regulatory affairs. His career has focused on the interaction of energy fields with human tissue, and for the past decade and a half, he has worked with the energy fields from ultrasound beams.
As a lead investigator on an NIH Bioengineering Research Partnership, he helped to develop an integrated diagnostic therapeutic ultrasound device for research in high intensity focused ultrasound, with specific application to ventricular ablation for cardiac arrhythmias. He is also a pioneer in the emerging field of ultrasonic neuromodulation, a technique for non-invasive mechanical stimulus of neurons.
