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

MURAB Hackaton Integration Week

On 14th and 15th of March 2019, several Consortium members gathered at the MURAB Hackathon in Twente to work on the software in the MURAB project and perform data acquisition on breast phantoms. Scanning is performed by an ultrasound probe on the robot arm which follows the breast surface in a spiral motion. It is […]
