Work Package 7

Minimally Invasive Therapy

WP7 will comprise a concept study to establish how PET-CT guided thermal ablation and focused beam irradiation as well as percutaneous radioactive seed placement, by a manipulator-assisted needle guidance system can be performed. Based on the new PET-CT tracers, the target volumes for minimally-invasive treatment will be adapted. Patient selection for study treatment dependent on mutational status and evaluation of alternative treatment options will be performed.
