MR-compatible Ultrasound System for the Therapeutic Application of Ultrasound
The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT presents at RSNA 2019 – 105th Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, December 1-6, 2019 in Chicago, US, together with MR Instruments, Inc. a MR-compatible ultrasound system for the therapeutic application of ultrasound.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT presents an MR-compatible ultrasound system for the therapeutic application of ultrasound (tumor therapy, hyperthermia, neuromodulation, drug delivery) as part of a joint research collaboration with the company MR-Instruments Inc..
In addition, the possibilities of providing MR-guided focused ultrasound as well as an ideal integration of ultrasound applicators in MR-coils will be presented. An overall setup consisting of an ultrasound system, software modules and ultrasound applicators for the various applications embedded in a translational context (from the cell to small animals to humans) will be presented.
The Fraunhofer IBMT will be pleased to welcome you at the MR-Instruments booth, number 8145.
