The Neuravive treatment is intended for Essential Tremor patients who do not respond to medication.
It is important to consult with your physician to determine if the Neuravive treatment is right for you, and gain a referral through to a clinician that has been trained on Neuravive and other traditional treatments, so that you can discuss all options and determine which is best for you.
As part of the evaluation process, your physician will need to determine the severity of your tremor and perform a full medical evaluation to assess your overall condition. This is necessary to ensure a safe and effective Neuravive treatment for your condition.
If you are deemed potentially suitable, next you will need to undergo a CT scan, for a better assessment of your skull’s shape and density. This will allow the clinician to determine whether the ultrasound waves will be able to reach the target point in the brain.
Patients should be aware that the entire procedure is fully conducted inside an MRI scanner, which is the “eyes” of the clinician, allowing them to identify the proper location in the brain tissue, verify the effect and complete the final treatment. A frame is applied to keep the patient’s head still throughout the procedure. The patient remains awake as it is necessary to receive feedback from them during the procedure.
Other factors, including the presence of metallic implants, pregnancy or general health must be considered to determine if Neuravive is right for you.
