MAX4 Imagers Project

The MAX4 Imagers project is a collaboration between researchers from the Capital Region hospitals and the newly opened synchrotron, MAX IV in Lund, Sweden, and is supported by a grant from the Capital Region Research Foundation for Healthcare

 MAXIV Imagers project

The MAX4 Imagers project is a collaboration between researchers from the Capital Region hospitals and the newly opened synchrotron, MAX IV in Lund, Sweden, which has opened up for the possibility to make the Capital Region hospitals world-leading in the pre- and clinical use of X-ray imaging with never-seen-before image resolution.

The project's main focus is upon the development of new image analyses algorithms to make it possible for both researchers and clinicians to understand the highly detailed anatomical patterns in synchrotron images - and importantly, to initiate a biomedical synchrotron imaging consortium acting as knowledge base linking together technology and clinical applications.

The project will do four demonstrations to investigate:

  1. The 3D microstructure of the brain,
  2. Sperm tail movement patterns,
  3. Leg muscle structure of patients, and
  4. Bone structure.

The results from the four demonstration projects can be applied directly to clinical projects, and thereby pave the way for integrating the potential of synchrotron imaging for improving patient care.
