Learning-based Control in MR-guided Hyperthermia for 3D Adaptive Cancer Therapy (Learn-2-Act)

Hyperthermia is an adjuvant treatment to locally heat tumours (42-43°C) making chemotherapy and radiotherapy significantly more effective without adding side-effects. We will develop learning-based control methods using MR-temperature maps to heat tissue accurately, fast and non-invasively. This enables more patients getting access to hyperthermia treatments translating in higher cure probabilities.
