Jurgen Futterer is Interventional-Radiologist at Radboudumc and associate professor at the University Twente (MIRA). His role focuses on imaging techniques in prostate cancer, with particular interest in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided interventions, such as MRI-guided laser-ablation, cryosurgery, and focused ultrasound surgery. Dr Futterer qualified at Radboud University Nijmegen in 2001, and completed his PhD on MRI techniques in the localisation 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 is co-principal investigator of an international, multicentre study-the PCa-MAP trial-to investigate multi-modality MRI of the prostate in localising prostate cancer, and 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.
