Emerging Transcranial Ultrasound Neuromodulation Technologies

You're invited to join the Clinical TMS Society for this installment of our Grand Rounds Webinar Series: Emerging Transcranial Ultrasound Neuromodulation Technologies, featuring Hong Chen! 

Transcranial ultrasound neuromodulation is an emerging technology with increasing clinical investigations. Ultrasound can penetrate the skull without surgery and focus its energy with high spatial precision anywhere in the brain. In addition, ultrasound neuromodulation has the unique capability to achieve noninvasive, spatially targeted, and deep brain neuromodulation. This talk will introduce the state of the art of ultrasound neuromodulation and discuss emerging technology developments in this field.

Take advantage of our live Q&A session at the conclusion of the webinar!

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to identify the following: 

  1. What is transcranial ultrasound neuromodulation
  2. Why this technology is the state of the art
  3. Emerging technology developments

Format: On-Demand

Cost: Members: $25 | Non-members $50 | Student Members FREE


Hong Chen, PhD

Dr. Chen is a world-leading scientist in developing innovative therapeutic ultrasound technologies and an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. She earned her Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering from the University of Washington in 2011. Dr. Chen was a postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University from 2012 to 2015. Since joining Washington University in St. Louis in 2015, her research has focused on developing ultrasound-brain interfacing techniques for diagnosing and treating brain diseases and understanding brain functions. Her research has been funded by NIH BRAIN Initiative, NIBIB, NIA, NIMH, NCI, NSF, and DoD.

She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the International Society of Therapeutic Ultrasound, the IEEE International Ultrasonics technical committee, and the Acoustical Society of America Biomedical Ultrasound technical committee. She has received numerous awards, including the Frederic Lizzi Early Career Award from the International Society of Therapeutic Ultrasound, the Young Investigator Award at the International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound, and Outstanding Teaching Award.
