Brief Summary The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of Auto Focusing (AF) echo imaging using the ExAblate Neuro system
Detailed Description This clinical investigation is a feasibility study designed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the ExAblate Neuro system to perform AF echo imaging in patients diagnosed with idiopathic Essential Tremor. during the standard care procedure for ET, patients will be injected with Definity microbubbles which will enable the ExAblate Neuro system to perform the AF imaging.
