The Minimally Invasive Image-Guided Intervention Center (MAGIC) is part of the Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and is chaired by prof. dr. Jurgen Fütterer.
The group has its roots in MRI-guided prostate treatment, and we have expanded to CT-, US-, and MR- image guided oncologic interventions, as for example biopsy of prostate, bone and liver; (non-) thermal ablations of pancreas, liver, kidney, prostate and vascular malformations. Supplementary we focus on nuclear interventions with Holmium particles; intra-operative navigation; robotics; ex-vivo imaging; clinical decision support; and perfusion and vascular interventions. The interventions are developed and performed in close collaboration with the Medical Innovation and Technology expert Center.
It is our goal to have a significant impact on healthcare by bringing our technology to daily practice. We are therefore fully equipped to develop, implement and improve image-guided interventions for clinical practice.
Jan Heidkamp successfully defended his PhD thesis with the title: 'Imaging techniques for intraoperative margin assessment in surgical oncology: the role of magnetic resonance imaging' on the 6th of April at 14.30 in the aula of Radboud University.
