Virtual Symposium on

“Therapeutic Ultrasound in Oncology”

The Society for Thermal Medicine is pleased to announce complimentary registration is now open for our special virtual symposium on “Therapeutic Ultrasound in Oncology”.
Sponsored by the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, this therapeutic ultrasound symposia will be held May 13 between 10am-12pm CDT (8am-10am PDT, 11am-1pm EDT). The emphasis of the symposia is to cover preclinical and clinical advances in FUS oncological therapies that will be of interest to the Society for Thermal Medicine, as well as members of ISTU and general FUS communities. 
This event will consist of five talks followed by a live Q&A panel discussion at the end of the symposium.
  • Talk #1 - Dr. Samuel Pichardo, PhD - MRg FUS Hyperthermia for pelvic and head/neck cancers

  • Talk #2 - Professor Constantin C. Coussios, PhD, FREng, Dr. Paul Lyon, MD, PhD, Dr. Michael D. Gray, PhD - Thermally-triggered release without thermometry? Results from a first-in-human trial of ultrasound-guided ultrasound-triggered targeted delivery from thermosensitive liposomes in patients with liver tumours

  • Talk #3 - Dr. Gregory J. Czarnota, PhD, MD, FRCPC, MRMD (MRSC) - Ultrasound-Stimulated Microbubbles and Radiotherapy - Preclinical Investigations and Translation to a Clinical Trial

  • Talk #4 - Dr. Pejman Ghanouni, MD, PhD - MRg FUS Ablative Therapies in Oncology 

  • Talk #5 - Dr. Suzanne LeBlang, MD - Current Status and Future Directions of Focused Ultrasound in Oncology  
Registration is FREE to all. The last day to register is May 10, 2021.
