Image-guided therapies

Image-guided therapies

Image-guided treatments are less invasive than traditional surgery. We view and treat a tumor at the same time, using imaging techniques such as MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound. As a result, we can treat cancer in a more targeted way. No or only a small incision is needed, putting less strain on the patient’ body and making a long hospital stay unnecessary.

“At UMC Utrecht, we are constantly coming up with new and improved image-guided treatment methods. We are eager to treat cancer more precisely and minimally invasively. These therapies, such as the MR-Linac, play an important role in keeping healthcare accessible to as many people as possible.”

Lectures

We cherish our associate professors. At UMC Utrecht, we give them the opportunity to hold their own ‘inaugural lecture’: the UHD lecture. This allows them to present their research work and vision in a comprehensive video, available to all audiences.
