County Durham Based Kromek Reveals New R&D Project

County Durham-headquartered Kromek, a supplier of detection technology focusing on the medical, security screening and nuclear markets, has revealed a new Innovate UK-backed R&D project to improve the techniques used during cancer surgery.

Kromek has commenced development of a new system to improve the pathological medical imaging techniques used during cancer surgery to distinguish between healthy and non-healthy tissue.

The three-year project, which has received grant funding from Innovate UK, is being conducted in partnership with Adaptix, the developer of a Flat Panel X-ray Source (FPS), and the University of Manchester.

The project is to develop a prototype of a new type of pathology cabinet, based on Kromek’s CZT detectors and Adaptix’s FPS, to produce high-resolution 3D images that provide more accurate differentiation of the boundaries between diseased and healthy tissue.
