ClinicIMPPACT is a European FP7 ICT-Project started on 01/02/2014 with the duration of 42 months.
Project duration: 42 months
Project dates: 01/02/2014 - 31/07/2017
ClinicIMPPACT has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 610886.
ClinicIMPPACT builds upon the successful completion of the IMPPACT project (Grant No. 223877, completed in February 2012) that resulted in the creation of a physiological Radio-Frequency Ablation (RFA) model for liver cancer treatment. This preliminary RFA model has been tested in porcine animal studies with extensive histological workup and in a clinical study using patient data for retrospective simulations.
The main objective of ClinicIMPPACT is to bring the existing Radio-Frequency Ablation (RFA) model for liver cancer treatment
Project IMPPACT , Grant No. 223877, completed in February 2012 into clinical practice.
For this the project will pursue the following objectives:
- To prove and refine the RFA model in a small clinical study
- To develop the model into a real-time patient specific RFA planning and support system for Interventional Radiologists (IR) under special consideration of their clinical workflow needs
- To establish a corresponding training procedure for IR's
- To evaluate the clinical practicality and benefit of the model for use in the routine workflow in a user survey and expert forum.
