The evolution of medical imaging – where will innovation take us next?

The influence of medical imaging is constantly growing, diseases are detected earlier and treatments are becoming more effective. Within the last 25 years, cancer mortality rates have decreased by an impressive 25%. Advances in medical imaging have a big part to play in this achievement and we can expect that as technology continues to develop, mortality rates will drop even further. [More]

Advances in whole mount brain imaging: an interview with Patrick Myles, President, Huron Digital Pathology

Advances in whole mount brain imaging: an interview with Patrick Myles, President, Huron Digital Pathology

The ability to image the brain, so that it can be visualized and shared, is crucial to revolutionizing neuroscience research. Even a few years ago, what we’re able to do today wasn’t possible. The combination of being able to digitize whole mount slides and the availability of low cost storage and computer horsepower that has helped to make that a reality. [More]
