Image calibration and analysis is a critical component of medical diagnostics. There are currently millions of digital images captured everyday that can only serve to provide general information because they lack calibration information.
Medecal Sciences is a Cambridge UK based specialist company that develops calibration tools and techniques for medical applications. The current range of calibration strips cover most sizes and shapes of lesion. They are simply photographed with the lesion or the area of interest to create an internal calibration that stays an integral part of the image. With the calibration information in the image they can be used not only for comparing how a condition changes over time but also how different patients present and progress with treatment. This opens up many important areas of  care, treatment and research. The company is working on cloud based imaging technology to allow users access to advanced analytical tools, comparative analyses and secure patient care pathways.
