Cardiff University School of Engineering Medical Engineering Research Group
Type of organisation: Academic
Cardiff University’s Medical Engineering Group has gained international recognition for its research.
We are actively engaged in research relating to:
novel diagnostic imaging and personalised treatments techniques
advanced medical image and signal processing methods
health and sports monitoring
human motion analysis.
We also work to understand how the body responds to trauma, implants and other biomedical technologies.
Our research allows us to engineer solutions that will have positive benefits in the healthcare and sports industries for medical patients. Our activity also impacts the legal profession and the safety of children and society.
We have extensive experience of working with different medical imaging modalities such as Computed Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and ultrasound imaging.
We also have extensive experience in:
human body acoustics
polynomial matrix algorithms for broadband sensor array signal processing
body sensor networks
image and video segmentation
human motion analysis
human action and activity recognition.
Our research group collaborates closely with several partners in industry and the National Health Service which support our activity in medical research.
