The project, led by Professor Reza Razavi and Professor Jo Hajnal encompasses a multi-disciplinary team of software engineers, robotics experts, imaging specialists, computing specialists and clinicians. The Award has been granted to Kings College London, along with colleagues at St Thomas’ Hospital, Imperial College London, the University of Firenze (Florence, Italy), the Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, Canada) and Philips Healthcare.

We will use state of the art techniques in ultrasound, MRI, robotics and computing to create a multi-probe system for automated ultrasound imaging.
