  • Publication number: 20180207044
    Abstract: An integrated patient platform system and method for performing medical procedures below a patient's body is disclosed. In some embodiments, a superior level surface of an integrated patient platform is configured to support a patient lying in a prone or supine position, and an inferior level surface of the integrated patient platform is configured to support one or more medical procedure components. The superior level surface includes an aperture disposed therethrough. At least a portion of the aperture forms an examination window that is adjustable in size and position and configured to receive a portion of a patient over or in the examination window. A medical procedure component may be positioned on the inferior level surface to contact or otherwise interface with the portion of the patient positioned over or in the examination window.

  • Patent number: 8986211
    Abstract: A method to deliver focused ultrasound energy from a position outside a skin of a patient to a nerve surrounding a blood vessel, includes placing the patient on a table in a substantially flat position, moving a transducer into a position inferior to ribs, superior to an iliac crest, and lateral to a spine of the patient, maintaining the transducer at the position relative to the patient, and delivering focused ultrasound energy through the skin of the patient without traversing bone, wherein the direction of the focused ultrasound is directed from a lower torso to an upper torso of the patient.
