Through participation in large scale European projects, public private collaborations and bilateral research agreements with leading research organisations, we can provide services in a wide range of quantitative analysis problems, supporting population and clinical research.
Examples of quantitative imaging biomarkers and tools include:
- Aneurysm segmentation (CTA)
- Carotid artery segmentation (CT)
- Carotid artery plaque characterization (CT/MR/US)
- Distensibility measurement carotid artery (CTA)
Many of these biomarkers have been documented in peer reviewed papers, thoroughly validated, and applied in the context of population and clinical imaging studies.
