Welcome to Ultrasurge
Ultrasurge is a 5-year programme investigating ultrasound in surgery. Supported by a programme grant from EPSRC for over £6m in funding, Ultrasurge looks into a series of interelated themes around the effect of ultrasound on tissue, the miniaturisation of ultrasound transducers, and using external robots to direct ultrasound tipped robot tentacles to the surgery site within the body.
