CoBra project aims to improve quality of both diagnosis and treatment of localized cancers, by developing a new medical robot prototype for brachytherapy and biopsy under guidance of MRI.
The overall objective of the project is to enhance the patient’s quality of life and reduce their cancer mortality. The prostate and other soft tissues will be the main localized cancers of interest in the Cobra project.
To develop new medical robot prototype for diagnosis and treatment of localized cancers by brachytherapy and biopsy under guidance of MRI
To initiate a training programme for practitioners and physicists on MRI based robotic brachytherapy and biopsy in the 2 Seas region
To elaborate a map for targeted cancers dispersion in the region of 2 Seas. This allows estimating the optimal placement of the designed concept in the region of the 2 Seas according to the patient concentration
To develop a network of SMEs and start-ups for technological transfer of the new designed concept
