Transcranial focused ultrasound is an old idea which has become a clinical reality within recent years. MR image guidance and treatment monitoring are key enablers of focused ultrasound technology for use in the brain. The origins, current state and future roadmap of this technology will be discussed. Given the challenges of accessing the brain and the high cost and limitations of some current approaches, this non-invasive technology has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of many brain disorders.
