Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury can result in joint instability, decreased functional performance, reduced physical activity and quality of life, and an increased risk for post-traumatic osteoarthritis.
One of the world’s first photon-counting computed tomography imaging devices has been installed in the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) at Linköping University Hospital.
The Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization is first in the world to install a completely new type of computer tomograph in a clinical environment. It provides considerably higher resolution and gives significantly smaller radiation doses.
Researchers at LiU have for the first time been able to use information from computer tomography images to simulate the heart function of an individual patient. Some of the modelling methods they use have been developed in the motor industry.
Medical image science comprises techniques and processes intended to create images of a person for medical purposes. It reaches across disciplines such as radiology, endoscopy, microscopy, image processing and visualization.
We conduct research in medical radiology and visualisation, radiation physics, radiochemistry and radioecology.
CMIV conducts focused front-line research providing solutions to tomorrow’s clinical issues. The CMIV mission is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization for applications within health care and medical research.
