Warner Reviews New UVA Medical Procedure

U.S. Senator Mark Warner visited the UVA Medical Center on Wednesday to see a new, non-invasive medical procedure. Focused ultrasound directs beams of energy to tumors and other abnormalities to eliminate them without harming the surrounding tissue. Senator Warner says this is possible because of a private and public collaboration.  Focused ultrasound is currently approved to treat medical problems in a uterus, and to relieve pain from bone cancer. UVA doctors hope to use it to target other cancers, brain tumors and Parkinson’s disease.

With a $2 billion sale of the Clippers hanging in the balance, a judge is set to determine Monday, June 30, 2014, if the terms of a family trust alone are enough to confirm Donald Sterling was properly removed as trustee and allow his estranged wife to sell the team without his consent.
