Jolesz IIIGT book 2014

The Ferenc A. Jolesz (Ed.) Intraoperative Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy book was published.

February 1, 2014

Image-guided therapy (IGT) uses imaging to improve the localization and targeting of diseased tissue and to monitor and control treatments. During the past decade, image-guided surgeries and image-guided minimally invasive interventions have emerged as advances that can be used in place of traditional invasive approaches. More...

The Fine Line Between Breast Cancer and Normal Tissues

September 22, 2014

BWH Press releases. Up to 40 percent of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery require additional operations because surgeons may fail to remove all the cancerous tissue in the initial operation. However, researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) have successfully tested a tool they developed that will help surgeons better distinguish cancerous breast tissue from normal tissue, thereby decreasing the chances for repeat operations.  

The study is...

10th Interventional MRI Symposium

October 11, 2014

This time we had nearly 300 participants and a distinct increase of the interest of the industry with 26 companies participating in the industrial exhibition.
The three industrial symposia were well attended (with more than 90 participants each) and received. The quality of the talks and posters were high and many new developments and results were presented. ...
