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.

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.
Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...
Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.
Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...
Investigation of the temperature dependence of the skyrmion Hall effect reveals further insights into possible new data storage devices

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.
Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.
After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.
"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
