MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound therapy

– AI for automatic image-guided therapy

The image-guided therapeutic ultrasound group investigates magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) guided high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for tissue ablation, and the direct and indirect therapeutic effects of ultrasound (mediated) molecular interventions, including image-guided drug delivery. Our main objective is the development and application of image-guided focused ultrasound therapies.

Alliance partners involved: UMCU

Maarten Paulides (TU/e): “Learning techniques that apply the doctor’s knowledge through image-guided therapies in the treatment room (MR-guided therapy, possibly even for IGT / intervention suite). You could call this AI for automatic image-guided therapy.”
