CoBra at a glance

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.
