European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology (ETERNITY)

Anne Roc’h, Electrical Energy Systems (EES) group.

ETERNITY will create a long-lasting multidisciplinary, academic-industrial network for doctoral training, with leading European industries and academia, to achieve a breakthrough in the design of innovative medical equipment where the risk of EMI has been managed at its core: with wearables, with on-board platforms and with collaborative care systems for hospitals. ETERNITY is about including the risk management of EMI in the design of innovative, electronic medical equipment. This shift is both urgently needed and mandatory.

The key targets of ETERNITY are:

  • Scientific: to propose and master solutions to the scientific challenges of the inclusion of EMI risks into the electronic design of medical equipment (ranging from wearables with biosensors to complex systems of systems).
  • Training: to steer a dedicated group of young European pioneers towards leading positions in the highly innovative field of electronic designs for medical technology.
  • Industry-academia network: to build a direct international transfer path, involving people and technology, between leading European universities and industries across all sectors of the medical technology market.
  • Society: to enable safe and reliable medical equipment and innovation, in our modern environments: in medical institutions, at home and while being on the move.

Prostate cancer localization by ultrasound imaging of angiogenesis
Massimo Mischi, Biomedical Diagnostics Lab (BM/d) of Signal Processing Systems (SPS) group.

One in 7 men is diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. Yet, current management of the disease is far from optimal. This can mainly be ascribed to the limits of the available imaging technology, such that current diagnostics of prostate cancer is still based on systematic biopsies. We have invested more than 10 years of research in the development of novel ultrasound solutions to image cancer angiogenesis and localize prostate cancer. In my talk, I will present the journey through our technological advances as well as the route towards valorisation and clinical translation of our scientific output.
