Selection of ongoing projects
AI is an underlying theme in much of the research department’s work. Our researchers are working on solutions that combine AI and visualization, focusing on how physicians control and adjust computer results. Among other projects, Sectra is one of the main participants in the Swedish initiative AIDA, Analytic Imaging Diagnostics Arena. The project serves as a national arena for research into AI for medical image analysis, with the aim of leveraging the full benefits of AI-based tools in the Swedish healthcare sector.
Two of our researchers are also participating in another large-scale Swedish AI initiative called WASP, Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program. Sectra is contributing research in diagnostic imaging so that AI can move from the laboratory to providing real value in the healthcare sector.
We are also cooperating with Visual Sweden, which is on the way to becoming a world-leading hub for innovation in image analysis and visualization, with close cooperation between industry, academia and the healthcare sector.
In addition to AI research, Sectra is also participating in a major initiative in the field of orthopaedic surgery. The aim of the project portfolio, including numerous collaboration partners in healthcare and academia, is to develop image-powered, high-precision methods for orthopaedic surgeries, both for pre-operative planning and post-operative follow-up.
Sectra’s research efforts often result in scientific publications, a great vehicle for engaging in and benefitting from the academic community. Out of the 100+ publications from Sectra’s research department and its collaborations over the years, a few representative examples are presented below.
