The MURAB project has the ambition to drastically improve precision and effectiveness of the biopsy gathering for cancer diagnostic operations. By reducing the usage of expensive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to a minimum in the workflow and at the same time yield the same precision during samples targeting, a new workflow will be offered to the practice. Guided by a novel MRI-Ultrasound (US) registration, a robotically steered US transducer equipped with an acoustically transparent force sensing will autonomously scan the target area and optimally acquire volumetric and elastographic data. An innovative technique, called Tissue Active Slam (TAS), will be developed in the project to optimally register the intraoperational acquired volume to the preoperational MR imageRead more about MURAB
MURAB will actively take part to next European Robotics Forum in Edinburgh! The results of the first year of project will be presented in two posters during the workshop “Robotic surgery in the European researcher community: autonomous and semi-autonomous precision interventions“, organised by the University of Verona.Read more about MURAB will be at ERF2017!
On February 22nd and 23rd 2017 we had a project meeting in Verona, where we discussed the results of the first year of MURAB and we planned the work for next year. Here’s a picture of the meeting! (More pics on our Facebook page!)Read more about MURAB meeting in Verona
