Richard ten Broek and co-workers have received a €150K grant from the 'Maag Lever Darm Stichting' for further development of cineMRI to diagnose adhesions.CineMRI is a novel technique that can be used to map adhesions in patients with chronic post-operative pain following abdominal surgery. Approximately 10% of patients undergoing abdominal surgery develop chronic pain. Adhesions are a frequent cause of pain, but difficult to diagnose and manage. With cineMRI adhesions can be detected and mapped non-invasively, allowing for personalized management of post-operative pain. cineMRI footages, however, can be difficult to read. In a collaborative project of the department of Surgery and DIAG artificial intelligence will be used to automate radiological reading of cineMRI scans and improve accuracy.
Richard ten Broek is member of theme Tumors of digestive tract.
