Cutting edge of medical imaging in India

Jul 12, 2021 Radiology Updates

There have been rapid advancements in imaging techniques being used in India. Two of these are cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and photoacoustic imaging.

Indian government’s science research funding agency announced that India would get four new cryo-EMs. Cryo-EM is a protein imaging technique. It will help medical professionals give quicker detection and response to any new disease.

Meanwhile Photoacoustic systems are built on the conventional ultrasound imaging platform; the only additional cost is of the light source. As such, the cost to a patient is comparable to an ultrasound scan. This artificial intelligence-augmented photoacoustic imaging technique is an advancement in cancer diagnostics.
