|Trancranial MRg Focused Ultrasound for Neuropatic Pain||
Device: ExAblate 4000 focused ultrasound brain intervention
Non-invasive brain intervention using MR-guided focused ultrasound
- Precision of lesioning [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Comparison of size and location of sonicaion lesions on MRI with planning coordinates.
- Safety measurements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability.
- Lesion characteristics [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Size of lesions as a function of applied energy/temperature.
- Clinical Efficacy [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Pain Scores on the Visual Analog Scale following intervention and at follow-up.
