In the first study of its kind, researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have designed and implanted a transparent window in the skull of a patient. The implant was then used with functional ultrasound imaging to collect high-resolution brain imaging data.

Preliminary findings suggest that this sensitive, non-invasive approach could open new avenues for patient monitoring and clinical research, as well as broader studies of how the brain functions.
