RESEARCH Research

The Institute for Medical Science and Technology (IMSaT) was founded in 2006 as a joint venture of the Universities of Dundee and St. Andrews. Five core teams work across complementary areas - Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Medical Ultrasound, Surgical Technology, Photonics and Cell Biology & Nanomedicine. The combined expertise of these groups facilitates translational research in imaging and allied topics, including instrument development for minimally-invasive surgery, laser imaging and therapy, drug delivery, regenerative medicine and medical robotics.

IMSaT is dedicated to leading research in the areas of multimodality image-guided intervention and therapy. IMSaT coordinates and is involved in several EU projects in the area, including the Integrated Interventional Imaging Operating System (IIIOS), Patient Specific Modelling and Simulation of Focused Ultrasound in Moving Organs (FUSIMO), Compact Ultrafast Laser Sources Based on Novel Quantum Structures (FAST-DOT) and Nanoporation, as well as conducting work in related topics, such as image-guided robot-assisted interventions. Here, an overview of IMSaT's work in image-guided interventions is presented.
