Welcome to the TRANS-FUSIMO Project

TRANS-FUSIMO was an EU funded project involving 11 partners from all over Europe. The project was a follow up project of FUSIMO where a planning system for MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery (MRgFUS) in moving abdominal organs has been developed. MRgFUS combines high intensity focused ultrasound for thermal ablation of diseased tissue with MR imaging to visualise the tumour and surrounding anatomy and to provide MR thermal feedback. However, MRgFUS treatment of the liver and other abdominal organs present tremendous technological challenges, including motion due to breathing and shielding of the target by the rib cage. Thus, TRANS-FUSIMO tried to translate MRgFUS in the liver to the clinic.
