Research on the cutting edge of technology and medicine

The unit Medical Imaging conducts research in the frontier area of ​​technology and medicine, focusing on technical development of new methods and improvement of existing methods for more efficient, safer and cheaper diagnostics, monitoring and treatment in health care.

The main area of research concerns medical imaging systems with several projects in ultrasound imaging, x-ray imaging (radiography, CT) and nuclear imaging (gamma camera, SPECT and PET). The close contact with health services, through collaboration with Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm County Council and Karolinska Institute, means that each research project is based on a clinically relevant question and the development of technical solutions is integrated with the health system

Our goal is that the scientific results of our projects will benefit the patients in terms of improved, earlier and less invasive diagnostic procedures, which in turn results in saving lives, improved quality of life and a more cost effective healthcare.
