High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)-therapy is completely non-invasive as the ultrasound energy is delivered outside the body, but focused in defined areas in an organ. MR provides three-dimensional treatment planning and real-time temperature feedback. Integrating HIFU in MR-scanners melds the technology for visualization and treatment, optimize the procedure and increase the therapeutic potential of HIFU treatment. The 3 T MR at the Intervention Centre has integrated HIFU equipment as part of a research agreement with Philips Medical Systems. Focus has been on both basic and clinical research projects.

Projects
