Jurgen Futterer is full professor & Interventional-Radiologist at Radboudumc and 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-guidedcryosurgery (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 books chapters. He has also introduced a robotic device for MRI-guided biopsy of the prostate, which has been established as a novel prostate intervention.
