INSIGHTEC , the leader in MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS), has been awarded Best Medical Technology for Exablate Neuro by The Galien Foundation.   Exablate Neuro is an innovative medical technology that uses focused ultrasound coupled with MR imaging (MRgFUS), to precisely target and treat areas deep within the brain through an intact skull.

The prestigious Prix Galien awards recognize excellence in scientific innovations that improve the state of human health. The Best Medical Technology award confirms INSIGHTEC's vision of transformative healthcare and the company's determination to improve the daily lives of patients living with essential tremor.

"It's a great honor to receive this award, which recognizes our dedication to researching and developing a non-invasive medical treatment," said INSIGHTEC's CEO and Chairman of the Board, Maurice R. Ferre MD. "Our pursuit of innovation is not only driven by our founder Kobi Vortman, but also by the leading neurosurgery centers which have adopted the Exablate Neuro around the world. This is an exciting time for INSIGHTEC and spurs on our commitment to supporting healthcare professionals, deliver treatments which truly improve the lives of people worldwide."

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Exablate Neuro in July 2016 for the non-invasive treatment of patients with essential tremor who had not responded to medication. Essential tremor is the most common movement disorder, affecting more than 5 million people in the United States, and millions more worldwide.
