Organised by the UK - W.Mids:Coventry&Warks local network.

About this event

Speakers: Dr. Geoff Spence and Dr. Abbas Al Shimary, Creavo Medical Technologies

With the emergence of new sensing technologies, Signal & Image Processing with Machine Learning are playing an increasingly important role in healthcare technologies. 

Please download and circulate the poster.

In this lecture, we will illustrate how non-invasive sensing technologies can be used to detect and parameterise biological signals, normally masked by interference and noise, and these can be used to make inference about medical conditions.

We will introduce Vitalscan,  a battery powered and portable MCG (Magnetocardiography) medical device that can be used in a routine and acute hospital setting whilst maintaining the accuracy and efficacy of the older technology SQUID devices.

This technology and approach can revolutionise front-line patient triage for chest pain including speeding up decision-making, offering better patient management and crucially saving time.

In 2017, Creavo Medical Technologies won two awards at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Innovation Awards for its cutting-edge cardiac imaging device which could help physicians accurately rule-out ischaemic heart conditions in a matter of minutes.


T&C at 6:30pm for the lecture at 7:00pm, networking light buffet afterwards.
