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 image

Clinical Workshop at ZGT Hospital

On 8th – 9th March 2018  Jeroen Veltman (Ziekenhuis Groep Twente) and Françoise Siepel (University of Twente) organized a clinical workshop for MURAB consortium members at the ZGT  hospital. In these two days imaging related topics such as registration and positioning of the robot to follow the right trajectories for the muscle and breast case were discussed. […]
