High-intensity, non-ionizing, focused [ultrasound] waves

This project aims at developing and testing equipment that couples ultrasound therapy and sonography to generate and use ultrasounds for:
  • destroying by heat and cavitation solid tumours without need of cutaneous access,
  • performing specific sonography measurements to monitor the procedures and to follow the effects on the targeted tumour.
  • in situ activation of encapsulated treatments.

Project leaders : Prof F. ZINZINDOHOUE, Prof C. CUENOD

Equipment : Operating room with CBCP; ultra-fast, high resolution sonographer, generator of focused acoustic waves, generator of electromagnetic waves (e.g., GSM)
