Technologies for healthcare
Ionizing X-ray and gamma-ray imaging techniques are used in medical diagnostics, security, and non-destructive testing. CEA Tech institute Leti has achieved some of the advances driving these techniques, and develops highly sensitive spectrometric detectors capable of discerning tissue or material in greater detail than other techniques.
The institute also leverages signal acquisition and processing and image processing know-how to develop in vivo and in vitro optical imaging systems. For example, the institute developed and patented lensless imaging, a technique used to monitor cell cultures in real time, capturing images of several thousand cells simultaneously. Leti also possesses expertise in unfocused imaging and Raman spectroscopy. By combining these technologies, the institute is able to both locate and characterize biological compounds on a single sample.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
Aquilab, France’s leading provider of medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment quality control and software solutions, signed a research contract with DOSEO to test and validate a new beam control method.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, developed a reliable, precise, and robust electron tomography image reconstruction software application, Guidar. The advance delivers fast, simple post-acquisition processing of tomography data.
i2S recently worked CEA Tech to develop a terahertz camera prototype at the international state of the art. THz rays do not pose any danger to the human body, opening up potential applications in a variety of fields.
Iprasense’s new Cytonote Counter does more than let you observe cells in culture—it assesses cell viability, providing unparalleled precision and reproducibility.
List, a CEA Tech institute, has developed tools that can reduce the dose of X-ray radiation delivered during medical imaging procedures without compromising the quality of the diagnosis. The advance will help eliminate the complications associated with overdosages.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
