Genovis Receives SEK 1.575 Million From VINNOVA
Published: Mar 26, 2013
VINNOVA (Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems) chose to support the project “Nanoparticles in movement serve as contrast agents in medical ultrasound,” which Genovis runs together with Associate Professor Tomas Jansson’s research group at the Department of Measurement Technology and Industrial Electrical Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH). So far the project has resulted in a contrast agent and a method that is unique to ultrasound. This method uses a variable magnetic field that causes magnetic nanoparticles to move in tissue. The movement can be detected by ultrasound.
