We are excited to introduce ISTU On-Air — a new series of monthly webinars designed to promote knowledge of Therapeutic Ultrasound and increase discussion among the ISTU community. A committee led by Kim Butts Pauly and Cyril Lafon are actively working on the programming for the webinar series.

Our next webinar will feature Joan Vidal-Jové M.D., Ph.D. presenting:

"The Presence of FUS in Oncology:

Linking Daily Oncology Practice with Basic Research"

Dr. Vidal-Jové is the Head of Focused Ultrasound Ablation Oncology at Barcelona University Hospital and has built his impressive career investigating focused ultrasound to treat more than 200 cases of pancreatic cancer, liver tumors, soft tissue desmoid tumors, and – more recently – lung cancer.
