Medical imaging

We have set up Medical Imaging department in Aligned Research to make the newest image radiology instruments broadly available for specialists.

Medical Imaging is one of most innovative areas of computer vision and demands a special attention to precision and performance.

New challenges in this area mean not only new technologies - it means better scanners, resolution, more data etc. It also means new demands from people. More and more people want to get a better medical service. Healthcare specialists simply don’t have the necessary tools yet that would allow realtime services like immediate analysis of CT or MRI scans, that will allow us to obtain treatment accuracy and urgent referral to a right specialist.

We collaborate with medical universities and research centers on image processing tools and augmented reality guided surgery with an aim to help patients get less invasive and better managed surgical treatment from the moment of receiving a diagnosis in shorter time possible. Our priorities were established with having in mind the needs of patients and clinicians and tremendously differs from other IT projects that can be costly and ineffective.

On this way we have developed many innovative tools - advanced vessel 3D reconstruction , highly precise perfusion module, automatic machine learning based approach for tissue segmentations with median error less than 9%. We have successfully applied convolutional neural networks for object detection and designed a system for optical object tracking, including original stereo camera.
