Congratulations to all authors for this AMPHORA milestone!


Great start for the Amphora project

Dr. Yosra Toumia won the competition on nanodroplets at the 23d European Symposium on Ultrasound Contrast Imaging in Rotterdam, with her talk entitled “A versatile chromo-responsive photopolymerized phase-change droplets as contrast agent for ultrasound imaging”. The nanodroplets that she presented are candidates for radiation dosimeters and will be studied in the context of Amphora.

AMPHORA aims to develop a non-invasive in-situ dosimetry system for radiation therapy with the potential of on-line dose assessment by casting ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) into dose sensing theranostic devices.
