CURE-OP

Combinational Ultrasound and Radiotherapy Enhanced Oncology Platform

The aim of CURE-OP is to develop the first commercially available high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) platform specifically designed for combinational cancer therapy. We will develop a robotic device that can deliver a broad range of ultrasound regimes (hyperthermia, thermal ablation and cavitation) enabling different types of cancer polytherapy. In the scope of this project’s timeframe, the HIFU device will be used in combination with a radiotherapy (RT) machine and tested clinically.
