Clinical Study

Benefit of Focused Ultrasound Treatment of Essential Tremor to Individuals With Vocal Tremor

The purpose of this study is to determine whether individuals being treated for their essential tremor significantly impairing hand/arm function also experience benefit to their voice tremor. This study will evaluate pre-treatment and post-treatment changes to voice tremor using clinical questionnaires, observation of tremor in structures of the face, jaw, tongue, and throat as well as using audio recordings and patient self-report. Individuals previously seen in the Voice Disorders Center where recordings of their throat were saved, post-FUS recordings can be made 3 months after treatment is completed if participants express interest in this option.
