A new noninvasive sound technology developed by a team of researchers at Michigan Engineering could improve outcomes for cancer and neurological conditions. Zhen Xu, professor of biomedical engineering at U-M and corresponding author of the study, explains the treatment called histotripsy, which noninvasively focuses ultrasound waves to mechanically destroy target tissue with millimeter precision and without the harmful side effects of current approaches such as radiation and chemotherapy. The faculty expert highlights the study and provides insights on the results.
