Radiologists Putting Surgeons Out Of Business?

Looks like the scalpel might be getting replaced by a keyboard and mouse

I recently watched a video where patients underwent surgery without a single cut. It's pretty unbelievable! For the past 13 years, Yoav Medan has been working as a pioneer in MR guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery. As I watched this clip,  I had visions of my future self telling my grandchildren (in a crotchety old man voice) about the good ol' days when we used to get to cut our patients open and slosh through their insides during surgery....those where the days.  I guess surgeons will have to start being a little nicer to the radiologists. They may need a job from them someday.
