Ultrasound now promises a gentler treatment: focused waves create microbubbles in the tissue that destroy tumor cells. This procedure gets currently tested at the University Hospital Magdeburg.

One lesson the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us is hospitals are short on staff and time is a most valuable and scarce resource in health care that should not be wasted.
