Summary: The Centre for Image Guided Oncological Interventions (CIGOI) of the UMC Utrecht is an initiative of the Division of Imaging at the University Medical Center, Utrecht, the Netherlands with the central objective to provide real-time image guidance for high precision in the treatment of localized tumors. Within the CIGOI a range of unique image-guided treatment techniques have been developed such as MRI controlled 'High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MRI guided HIFU), MRI-driven linear accelerator (first prototype installed at UMCU), MRI guided robotic brachytherapy, and intra-arterial radio-embolization with holmium microspheres.
