To provide optimum outcome for patients, accurate and safe delivery of therapeutic procedures is mandatory. Image guidance enables visualization of targets and organs at risk. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides excellent soft tissue contrast and allows for non-invasive monitoring of crucial parameters during treatment (e.g., organ motion, temperature changes, etc.). Therefore, MRI is excellently suitable for guidance of therapies, such as radiotherapy and thermal ablation methods.

The aim of this project group is to develop MR imaging methods, to enable and improve guidance of therapeutic methods.

Research Topics

  • Motion detection and quantification for MR-guided Radiotherapy (MRgRT)
  • Online monitoring of Thermochemical Ablations (TCA)
  • MR Temperature Imaging (MRTI) for thermal ablation procedures
