Research and Academic Publications


We are a unique resource with facilities not found anywhere else under one roof.

Our particular expertise in imaging, modelling and CAD / CAM technologies means that we routinely collaborate with academic institutions. Contact us for more information.

Our state-of-the-art radiology facilities are sometimes used for research projects.

We are especially proud of these collaborations:

– the Sedentex study on paediatric effective doses in dental cone beam computed tomography. The results were presented at the World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.

– the PHE publication on the safe use of hand-held xray equipment.
