Dr. Tavakkoli brings to our attention a new online course about Focussed Ultrasound. This rapidly advancing field is central to several research groups in Ryerson's Biomedical Physics program.

The Laboratory of Therapeutic Applications of Ultrasound (LabTAU) – in collaboration with the Focussed Ultrasound Foundation – recently launched the first presentation in its Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) dedicated to therapeutic ultrasound.

Throughout the upcoming year, a new course will become available each month. The first course – “Neurological disorders treated by HIFU” by W. Jeffrey Elias, MD – is available now.
