Research interests

Our goal is the development of a new technology that supports physicians during prostate biopsies. The system enables fully automatic image fusion between pre-interventional hybrid Positron-Emission Tomography (PET) / Magnetic Resonance (MR) images and real-time transrectal ultrasound (TRUS). Without using additional ionizing radiation it will enhance visualization, increase biopsy hit rate and reduce patient discomfort by shortening the duration of the interventional procedure.
