The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, awareness of early disease diagnosis and rising numbers of diagnostic imaging procedures are driving the demand for innovation in the diagnostic imaging market – estimated to grow at a 6.2% over the next five years.
Innovation in the processing of medical imaging data has enabled new diagnostic methodologies and improvements in patient care. The use of 2D and 3D imaging technology within clinical applications is increasing, owing to its comparable low cost and range of possible functionality.
In the Leeds City Region, the Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit (LMBRU) is a leading centre in patient focussed therapies for musculoskeletal diseases, bringing together a wealth of experience in imaging and diagnostics.
Our partner universities have extensive capabilities in this area, including expertise in developing and using imaging equipment, data processing and analysis algorithms, and diagnostic/analytical hardware:
- 2D/3D imaging hardware
- Image processing, feature/pattern identification, and algorithm development
- Metrology and measurement
- 3D modelling
- MRI, DEXA, and ultrasound scanning
- 3D motion and gesture tracking
- Re-usable diagnostic or analytic equipment
- In vitro diagnostic technology
