MR-compatible Ultrasound System for the Therapeutic Application of Ultrasound

18.10.2019

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.

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) is the world's largest association of radiologists, medical physicists and medical professionals.

The annual RSNA Annual Meeting in Chicago (the 105th), attended by over 60,000 people, is dedicated to scientific exchange and medical education, as well as the marketing of new medical systems.

Im Focus: Small particles, big effects: How graphene nanoparticles improve the resolution of microscopes

Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now discovered that graphene nano-molecules can be used to improve this microscopy technique. These graphene nano-molecules offer a number of substantial advantages over the materials previously used, making superresolution microscopy even more versatile.

Microscopy is an important investigation method, in physics, biology, medicine, and many other sciences. However, it has one disadvantage: its resolution is...

Im Focus: Atoms don't like jumping rope

Nanooptical traps are a promising building block for quantum technologies. Austrian and German scientists have now removed an important obstacle to their practical use. They were able to show that a special form of mechanical vibration heats trapped particles in a very short time and knocks them out of the trap.

By controlling individual atoms, quantum properties can be investigated and made usable for technological applications. For about ten years, physicists have...

Im Focus: Images from NJIT's big bear solar observatory peel away layers of a stellar mystery

An international team of scientists, including three researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has shed new light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy from the Sun is transferred to the star's upper atmosphere, heating it to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher in some regions, temperatures that are vastly hotter than the Sun's surface.

With new images from NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers have revealed in groundbreaking, granular detail what appears to be a likely...
