Breaking new treatment using ultrasound for inoperable tumour in children


Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children has found a ground-breaking new way to treat diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a common brain tumour found in children under the age of 15. The brainstem is affected in DIPG which helps us to use those involuntary actions such as heart rates, breathing, and even swallowing. Canadian doctors have delivered chemotherapy via MRI-guided ultrasound this being a world-first in this type of technology.
