National Competence Centre for Ultrasound and Image guided Therapy
Surgeons, engineers and scientists in Trondheim are collaborating closely in a unique way to improve current surgical methods and to develop new techniques for minimally invasive surgery, using ultrasound and image-guided therapy. For patients this means safer operations and faster recovery.
The centre is staffed by experts from St. Olav's Hospital, NTNU and SINTEF, and works closely together with several other national university hospitals and international collaborators. Professor Toril N. Hernes coordinates the centre.
