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.
On the 26th of June, Jurgen Fütterer and Han Nijsink discussed the implementation and the potential of AI in radiology at the Masterclass AI for radiology. The Masterclass invited speakers that are implementing AI in radiology and was directed to employees in the field of radiology. Our work regarding the implementation of AI for MRI-guided interventions was presented and resulted in a good discussion. We thank the committee and Siemens for inviting us and hosting the Masterclass.
