​Title:

Combined optical imaging and ultrasound focusing for hand-held, non-invasive cleaning of implanted cerebrospinal fluid shunting devices in patients of hydrocephalus: initial design and proof-of-concept.

Type: 

H2020 European High Impact Project in the ATTRACT Program (led by CERN). Also financed by the Junta de Andalucía (CEI Andalucía-Tech), the FIPSE Foundation and a researcher with the help of AEI MICIN and FEDER.

 

Principal investigator:

Prof.Dr. Emilio Gómez González (University of Seville, Spain). Dr. Javier Marquez Rivas.

Description:

This project presents the design and development of a handheld device for the application of image-guided focused ultrasound for preventive and non-invasive acoustic cleaning of implanted valves in patients with hydrocephalus.
