Development of thermal imaging for paediatric healthcare
Director of Study: Prof. Reza Saatchi
Additional Information: Open to all students; self-funded/governments sponsored/industry funded.
All studies are innovative, aiming to meet a real unmet need in medical engineering. Most are in collaboration with industry and hospitals
We have developed a number of thermal imaging based solutions in paediatric healthcare to assist with assessment of rheumatoid arthritis, detect vertebral fractures and measuring respiration rate. The use of thermal imaging in paediatric healthcare is growing as the technology becomes more accessible and image processing techniques become more sophisticated.
The aim of this study is to work with clinicians to develop thermal imaging as a viable diagnostic and monitoring tool in paediatric healthcare. The work is primarily suited for graduates with a degree or MSc in electronics, physics, mathematics, computing, mechanics or related subjects.
