Welcome

 

These are the websites for the EMRP Joint Research Project 'Dosimetry for Ultrasound Therapy (DUTy)', which started in 06/2012.

Please feel free to inform yourself about the project or to get in contact with the project consortium.

The project has been completed in 05/2015 and final reporting is now in progress. This website will be maintained until the end of 2016. An overview about the project is also available on the Opens external link in new windowEMRP website.

 

If you participated in the project's survey about "Measurement and Dose in Therapeutic Ultrasound Applications", you might be interested in some first results of the survey (including answers received until end of March 2014), which were presented as a poster at Opens external link in new windowISTU14 in Las Vegas, USA:

Poster: A. Shaw, E. Martin, J. Haller, G. ter Haar: "Dose for Ultrasound Therapy - What does it mean to you?"
