Towards Adaptive Cooperative Brachytherapy for the Prostate (CoBra)

Funding: R: ResearchAward

Make accessible and facilitate the practice of treatment of the prostate cancer from the brachytherapy technique.<br/>it is focused on the technological innovation for the healthcare sector in the region 2 Seas. The idea is to develop a new generation of the robotized brachytherapy of the prostate (Treatment of Prostate Cancer) concept, to be accessible by almost all patient in the region 2 Seas. The innovation is that the new technology of robotized system can be compatible with the imaging technique of the MRI. The old version that we developed is based ultrasound imaging (https://vimeo.com/190254726). <br/>My idea for you in this project, is to realize the mapping of potential users of this techniques of Prostate Cancer treatment in the region of 2 Seas (ex. Department of urology, cancer center,…), then to optimize the location of this concept to be accessible by the patient who is resident in the 2 Seas region. Knowing the cancer of prostate affects 1 men among 6 in the region of 2 Seas. Also, we can imagine that multiple centers from the region of 2 Seas can share the same equipment because it is transportable. We can also imagine some optimization issue located at the scale of a hospital.<br/>
