Focused ultrasound can be utilized to treat several painful bone conditions.

The technology is approved in Europe and the U.S. to relieve the pain in patients with bone metastases. It is also currently approved in Europe to reduce the pain associated with back pain originating from facet arthritis by non-invasively destroying the nerves of the affected facet joint. In addition, focused ultrasound is approved to heat and destroy small benign bone tumors in children and adults (such as osteoid osteoma).

A clinical trial will soon start in the U.S. to assess focused ultrasound for treating sacroilitis, an inflammation of the sacroiliac joint (where the lower spine and pelvis connect).

In addition, groups around the world are evaluating the potential of focused ultrasound to alleviate osteoarthritic pain of the knee.
