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.
