Medical

15 March 2017 - Medical

  1. Introducing vivaMOS - a CMOS image sensor spin-out from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL)

    Dan Cathie | CEO of vivaMOS

    vivaMOS is a technology start-up from the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), a world-leading multi-disciplinary R&D organisation.

    vivaMOS's focus is on the commercialisation of the wafer-scale CMOS image sensors from RAL, originally developed for X-ray detection.

    The presentation will provide a short overview of how vivaMOS is innovating wafer-scale CMOS image sensors, addressing some of the issues that current technologies are unlikely to be able to overcome long-term. It will also review the market today and the current state-of-play for their business.

  2. CMOS image sensors for medical imaging

    Renato Turchetta | CEO of WegaPixel

    • X-ray imaging: challenges and opportunities
    • Endoscopy

    The market share of CMOS Image sensors in the medical arena is expected to grow significantly over the next few years. Medical imaging is a very diverse sector with diverse needs and applications. Visible light imaging is one part of it.  CMOS  sensors have been having an impact on endoscopy, through the camera-in-a-pill market, for over a decade. Many applications in medical imaging are centered around the detection of X-rays and gammas. In this area, historically dominated by the so-called radiation detectors, CMOS imaging could still be considered as an emerging technology and is starting to have a considerable impact. This talk will review different application of CMOS image sensors in medical imaging and how this versatile technology can meet very different requirements.
