"He wants to create a Swedish MIT, a world-class research center for medical technology where the cross-fertilization of KI and KTH, doctors and engineers is part of the secret."The model we set up and believe in is that engineers and doctors work closely together. We demand that it be a research couple consisting of an engineer and a doctor who runs all projects," explains Niclas Roxhed, director of Medtechlabs."
"Niklas Roxhed, director of Medtechlabs, compares the life science cluster in Hagastaden with American life science clusters. And it is precisely in such clusters that the conditions for new ideas are generated and breakthrough technologies are created, he says.
- What is happening here in Hagastaden, with Karolinska University Hospital as the church in the village, is exciting. The thoughts go to Kendall Square in Boston, which is a boiling cauldron where all the pharmaceutical companies are wedged between Harvard and MIT, he told Life Science Sweden earlier this week."
"Fredrik Strand, breast radiologist and researcher at Medtechlabs, is granted funding for research on breast cancer. Fredrik Strand, a specialist in X-ray at Karolinska University Hospital and a researcher at Medtechlabs, receives four million from Horizon Europe, which distributes a total of SEK 60 million in research support to participants in the Radioval project."
"Stockholm wants to host one of the largest international congresses on medical technology. The plan is part of the ambition to become one of the most prominent regions in life science in the world. - It is completely in line with what Stockholm city and region want, says Niklas Roxhed, research leader for Medtechlabs and assistant professor at KTH, to Life Science Sweden."
"During Friday, the world's first silicon-based photon-counting computed tomograph was inaugurated at Medtechlabs at Karolinska University Hospital. The new X-ray technology is the first of its kind in the world, and with a higher resolution in the X-ray images, you can improve diagnostics and thus treatment results while reducing the radiation dose. - You can make the pixels smaller so that the resolution is better, says Mats Danielsson, who is behind the technology."
"Swedish innovative technology from the Royal Institute of Technology is being tested in a clinical research environment at the Bioclinicum, Karolinska University Hospital. Better image quality and lower radiation dose can improve diagnostics in a number of areas, including for cancer and cardiovascular diseases."
"Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have developed a method based on artificial intelligence (AI) that improves the diagnosis of breast cancer tumors and the ability to predict the risk of recurrence. The improved diagnostic precision can lead to more individualized treatment for the large group of breast cancer patients who have intermediate-risk tumors. The results are published . in the journal Annaler."
"Recently, an analysis of Medtechlabs was carried out on behalf of KTH. Patents taken by researchers from Medtechlabs primarily in 3D scanning were compared with patents from three other world-leading research centers in the same field. - It is a way to get a receipt on how well things are going, to do a current situation analysis. In this case, we were able to show that Medtechlabs has patents with a very high probability of reaching high business value compared to the others. "
"New study: The world-class value of Swedish medical technology. At the same world-leading top level as Stanford, Harvard, Oxford and Johns Hopkins, there is Swedish research in medical technology. This is shown by a new, unique study of the economic value of research patents."
"Now researchers at the Karolinska Institutet and KTH's MedTechLabs want to solve the mystery of the disease with mathematical calculations and machine learning algorithms."
