Dr. Lisa Landgraf at the ISTU poster session.
The ISTU – one of the most important international symposia in the field of focused ultrasound therapy – took place this year in Nashville (USA). Prof. Andreas Melzer and Dr. Lisa Landgraf represented the project group SONO-RAY at an exhibition booth. They also chaired the “Thermal Therapies” session and presented research results e.g. on “In Vitro Effects of Ultrasound Hyperthermia and Radiation Therapy on Glioblastoma, Prostate and Head and Neck Cancer Cell Lines: Preliminary Studies”. The poster “Towards Integrating Robotics for Combined Focused Ultrasound and Radiation Therapy into the Treatment Process” gave a first insight into how the combination of ultrasound and radioation therapy could operate in the clinic.
