San Carlos Clinical Hospital
Prof Martín Lagos, 28040 Madrid
Our group is multidisciplinary and oriented towards research in biomedical imaging techniques, including the evaluation of new technologies, methods of image analysis and processing, their practical clinical application as well as their technological development.
Our location in the Clinical Hospital facilitates the connection of the clinical environment with the basic specialities and teaching departments of the University.
Research in our group is directed in two directions. The more clinical direction towards the test itself, evaluating its effectiveness and safety, and towards its clinical applications, evaluating its diagnostic or therapeutic possibilities. A more technological direction aimed at the evaluation of technologies, for their standardisation, accreditation, and optimisation with special emphasis on radioprotection, as well as image analysis for the design and evaluation of detection, integration, simulation, or communication systems.
We also aim to generate results that are potentially transferable to companies and offer our services to other research groups that include biomedical imaging tests in their research projects.
