Thermal Ablation (TA) is a class of interventional techniques that deploy electromagnetic energy sources to treat malignant diseases by inducing thermal damage and, eventually, coagulation necrosis in tissues. Among similar techniques, laser thermal ablation (LTA) stands out as particularly promising. The main limitations of LTA, however, are the restricted dimensions of the area ablated with
Smart City DiVA is the project that led to the design and implementation of a dashboard for the city of Milan. City dashboards are among the digital tools that try to handle the complexity of smart cities, by displaying indicators about the urban performance and aiding people that are accountable for it, namely the Municipality
Space Business 4.0 (SB4) has the goal to generate innovative business models based on satellite data.
