With the EU currently spending 9% of its GDP on health, innovative solutions – such as low-cost imaging technologies – could be part of the answer.
The University of the West of England believes that non- or minimally invasive procedures using low-cost imaging technologies to aid accurate diagnosis, improve the patient experience and monitor treatment can help address the spiralling cost of healthcare. The university has been developing imaging, visualisation and analysis tools in dermatology, skin cancer, plagiocephaly and respiratory disorders and believes that there is further scope for many other conditions. So, the university is inviting medical-device companies, relevant research groups and clinical researchers/practitioners in Europe to explore the possibility of forming a network to advance this area of R&D and commercialisation of its output.
