"Therapeutic ultrasound publications have been growing exponentially since 1970, with a time constant of six years. As more devices receive regulatory approval, increased clinical use and associated publications will maintain this growth rate."
"This online, open access journal enhances the spread of knowledge and provides free access to a greater audience. Open access publishing is currently encouraged by many of the leading institutions worldwide and is aligned with the Focused Ultrasound Foundation goal of accelerating the development and adoption of Focused Ultrasound for clinical usage."
