Fraunhofer IBMT at MEDICA 2013
Breast Cancer – Combining Imaging Techniques for Quicker and Gentler Biopsies
Taking tissue samples can often be a traumatic experience for breast cancer patients. There are also significant costs associated with the procedure when magnetic resonance imaging is used. Fraunhofer scientists from IBMT and MEVIS working on the MARIUS project are developing a more cost-effective biopsy method that is easier on patients. They will showcase new alternative technologies and techniques combining MR and ultrasound imaging at MEDICA 2013 in Düsseldorf (Hall 10, Booth F05) from November 20 to 23.
