New research shows that liver-focused ultrasound stimulation significantly decreases chronic inflammation linked to obesity. In a study published today in Scientific Reports, researchers from the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research and GE Research demonstrate that ultrasound technology could be used as a noninvasive approach to treating obesity. These findings are important as they present breakthrough noninvasive methods to tap into the nervous system to treat metabolic diseases without the use of pharmaceuticals.
