CMI Event 2016  ‘Novel brains, hands, eyes and ears for therapy’, 16 december UTwente Enschede

This symposium will highlight technological developments that will improve therapy in the future. To make therapy less invasive, more effective and affordable, and tailored to the individual, the physician needs more information before and during therapy, and devices that administer treatment exactly where needed. Hence, the doctor needs more brains, hands, eyes and ears. Topics addressed will be big data, novel imaging modalities, and robotics for therapy.

A number of lab tours give you the opportunity to look behind the scenes of the University of Twente imaging and robotics labs.
