High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that can destroy a tumor without surgery or causing damage to other tissues.
Now, a scientist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is not only expanding the use of HIFU in Texas, but also exploring new ways to use it to deliver chemotherapy directly to a specific target in brain tumors and pediatric cancers.
Rajiv Chopra was recruited in 2012 to UT Southwestern Medical Center from Sunnybrook Research Institute and the University of Toronto with a Rising Star Award from CPRIT.
