tcFUS-control – Many thanks to our partners

Many thanks to our partners from Universitätsklinik Bonn, INSIGHTEC, and Fraunhofer MEVIS for a great collaboration in the concluded project tcFUScontrol funded by ZIM. We aimed at developing an Advanced Therapy Control System for transcranial MR-guided Focused Ultrasound for Essential and Parkinson’s Tremor.

The consortium made progress in using Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) MR images to measure the permeability of the blood brain barrier (BBB). Apart from that, a software tool for easier therapy planning computing the location of nerve fibre tracks in the brain based on Diffusion Tensor Imaging was developed.
