This technology makes it possible to display structures and changes in the body in real time. Physicians can theoretically “look directly into the patient” even during minimally invasive operations or therapies, which makes these interventions faster, easier and safer.
This technology is mainly used for therapy monitoring. For example, in catheter interventions or in the ablation of diseased tissue using focused ultrasound. We participate in various joint projects and are responsible for data analysis and the development of real-time AI for ultrasound, X-ray fluoroscopy and magnetic resonance tomography.
A selection of our research projects:
TRANSNAV: catheter tracking during cardiological interventions
CURE-OP: ultrasound therapy against cancer
ULTRAWEAR: real-time support for physiotherapy
