Medical Image Processing

Medical technology benefits from image processing for analysis, diagnostics and monitoring

Image processing is one of the main solutions behind innovations in the field of medical technology. In the development and production of medical products, image processing is primarily used for highly accurate quality assurance processes, tracking and documentation. In hospitals, it provides improved image-based diagnostics and support for operations. In addition, it allows for tracking down to the micrometre level and end-to-end monitoring. In the field of rehabilitation, image processing technologies improve the success of treatments with the active involvement of patients.

Image sensors and cameras in medical applications are more sensitive than the human eye and provide objective evaluations of medical data that produce more accurate, faster and more valid results. This helps doctors, specialist medical staff and patients to identify illnesses at an early stage and to make the decisions that will lead to cures. High-resolution images, often provided in real time, increase the precision and efficiency of surgical interventions and, at the same time, reduce the risks to patients of invasive measures.

Medical technology image-processing applications

  • Diagnostics – Image-guided microscopy, endoscopy and analysis, plus data transfer and lab automation
  • Orientation and control – Navigation, instrument tracking and image data fusion for support during operations and 3D diagnostics
  • Monitoring – Endosomatic and entire operations, controlling remote operations
  • Rehabilitation – Computer stereo vision-based robot tracking and control
  • Medical production – Camera-based inspection of product, component and assembly quality, manufacturing automation
  • Medical logistics – Batch tracking, stock monitoring

FRAMOS provides medical technology companies and OEMs with in-depth image processing expertise from simple sensors right through to high-tech systems for the development of innovative products that improve the efficiency of health care provision and give the manufacturer a competitive advantage. Using image processing leads to shorter treatment times, a reduced workload for doctors and an improved workflow, paving the way for approval and eligibility for reimbursement.
