Kromek Awarded Funding for £2.5m Breast Cancer Screening Solution Developments

NETPark based Kromek (AIM: KMK), a leading developer of radiation and bio-detection technology solutions for the advanced imaging and CBRN detection segments, announces that it has been awarded funding from the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, for two research programmes to further develop a low-dose molecular breast imaging (“MBI”) technology based on Kromek’s CZT-based SPECT detectors.

The first project is designed to prove the feasibility of using a single photon detector for ultra-low-dose MBI. This 18-month project, worth £0.5m, is to be carried out solely by Kromek. The second project, worth £2.0m, is a three-year programme to obtain and deliver clinical data on a low-dose MBI system. It is being conducted in partnership with Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (“Newcastle Hospitals”), the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and University College London.
