Removing a tumor without a scalpel or x-rays? This is possible thanks to a certain type of ultrasound: Strong, concentrated ultrasonic waves are directed at the patient's body in such a way that they heat and kill individual cancer cells. The new Trans-Fusimo project will use this technique for treating cancer in moving organs, especially the liver. The EU has granted just over €4 Million for this.
