Jurgen Futterer, MD, PhD
Jurgen Futterer is an Interventional-Radiologist at Radboud umc and a full professor at the Robotics and Mechatronics group, University of Twente.
His role focuses on imaging techniques in cancer, image-guided interventions and robotics. With particular interest, he is implementing and performing oncological interventions with special focus on MR-guided interventions, such as MR-guided cryosurgery (clinical), focal laser ablation (clinical), and focused ultrasound surgery (pre-clinical and clinical).
Dr Futterer qualified at Radboud University Nijmegen in 2001, and completed his PhD on MRI techniques in the localization and staging of prostate cancer in 2006. He was a radiology resident at the University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, in 2003, and completed a fellowship in interventional radiology/body MRI in 2009.
Dr Futterer has published extensively on MRI in prostate cancer in various journals and book chapters. He has also introduced a robotic device for MRI-guided biopsy of the prostate, which has been established as a novel prostate intervention.
Joseph J. Busch, Jr. MD
Dr. Busch brings a culmination of 40+ years in Diagnostic Radiology and hundreds of international research studies to Busch Center in Alpharetta, Georgia. His approach focuses on preventative screening, accurate diagnosis with personalized care.
Dr. Busch began using mpMRI in 2010. He was trained by the world’s leading experts, including Professors Jelle Barentsz and Jurgen Futterer, on how to perform targeted biopsy of the prostate using mpMRI. Dr. Busch now works alongside Professors Jelle Barentsz and Jurgen Futterer on prostate cancer and treatment.
Dr. Busch also collaborates with Professor Anwar Padhani, the world’s leading authority on Whole Body Imaging, studying and learning Whole Body MRI techniques for diagnosis and response to therapy. Dr. Busch is interpreting PSMA and F18 Axumin PET/CT scans for recurrent prostate cancer in post-treatment men.
Dr. Busch is also part of the European and USA prostate working groups. He has lectured and taught mpMRI at RSNA, Johns Hopkins, and Scottsdale, Arizona, and is a member of the ESUR, International Cancer Imaging Society and RSNA.
