Diagnostic Images with Enhanced Tube and Line Visibility in Mobile CXR

Tube and line visualisation is a significant challenge in chest X-rays collected in the ITU setting. Anti-scatter grids cannot typically be used, despite the highly scattering mediastinum and abdominal regions, and images are often viewed on laptops or other poor-quality monitors.

IBEX Trueview® software addresses this challenge by creating gridless images that retain diagnostic image quality in the lung field whilst simultaneously enhancing the visualisation of tubes, lines, and mediastinal structures.

Unlike other image processing techniques, this enables a single image to be used for both diagnosis and the safe placement of lines and tubes, providing the potential for improved safety and workflow efficiency.

IBEX Trueview® uses advanced physics modelling and AI to generate highly accurate scatter estimates and additional compositional outputs from standard radiographs. This is used to remove the effect of scatter and guide advanced post-processing methods with a local knowledge of scatter and composition.

The result: The highest possible diagnostic quality in the lung field with a simultaneous boost in the contrast and visibility of lines, tubes, and bone structures in a single image.

In a recent scoring trial of mobile chest X-ray scans in an ITU setting, clinicians were 3.83⁽¹⁾ times more likely to agree that safe placement of lines and tubes could be confirmed with Trueview images when compared with the original manufacturer images.

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.

Dr Neil Loxley, - Chief executive, IBEX

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.

Steve Clements, - Managing Director, aXenic

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
