CMIV has for many years collaborated with the Mayo Clinic and Professor Cynthia McCollough. During the past year, collaboration has deepened further around photon-counting
computer tomography. Among other things, one of CMIV's PhD students Mårten Sandstedt spent the fall 2019 at the Mayo Clinic to learn more about the technology and work on common research projects.

 

We congratulate Professor McCollough on the appointment and look forward to our continued collaboration!
