FUSIMO aims at developing a model for focused ultrasound surgery in moving organs, such as the liver. With support in planning of the intervention, monitoring of the treatment progress, as well as by assessing the therapy outcome, focused ultrasound can become a safe and successful non-invasive procedure for tissue ablation in moving abdominal organs.
