EPSRC Image Guided Therapies UK Network+


The next-generation of surgical treatments

Research in the field of image-guided therapies aims to develop new and improved technologies specifically designed for modern surgical interventions. By using smart devices which interact with patient-specific pre-surgical data, it is hoped we can increase safety levels, reduce recovery times and advance the treatment options available to patients. This field of research combines advances in medical imaging, sensor technology, computer modelling, robotics and visualisation to enable greater surgical precision.

Supporting specialist research collaborations

Our national network is made up of specialist academics, early career researchers, clinicians, and industry partners who are supported by a series of events and exclusive collaboration opportunities. Our aim is to increase the impact of image guided therapy research by identifying synergies and complimentary research specialisms from across our membership to increase clinical translation.
