Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine

DICOM, or Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine is a standardised file format created to aid the distribution and viewing of medical images. CT scans, MRIs and Ultrasound scans are converted to the standard DICOM format for distribution and processing.

This allows medical viewers such as Perspecta, or Dextroscope to work with a wide range of medical scans, and yet only have a single file format to worry about, ensuring maximum efficiency.

Ultrasensitive Imaging: Hunting Every Photon
As the demands for precise imaging in fields such as medicine, astronomy, and real-time machine vision in hostile environments continue to increase, so the demands placed on imaging equipment become ever more stringent. An imaging method based on Single Photon Avalanche Photodiodes (SPAD) offers the potential to ease this bottleneck greatly.
