Expertise

Digital Inclusion

We specialize in tool, methodologies and technologies that promote inclusion of and collaboration among the stakeholders in ICT implementation and digitalization processes. We have a long and broad experience in developing and evaluating welfare technology, ICT-based welfare services and electronic health information systems and services. We are also developing technology for crisis handling, museums and information systems to protect cultural heritage, and for the oil industry.

Image guided therapy

Image-guided therapy helps medical staff to look behind the surface of the skin and deep into the body. It can be compared with the GPS in a car. It makes surgery safer and in many cases less invasive. By connecting the CT or MR images taken before surgery, with the patient during surgery, the surgeon can plan the operation better and avoid damaging important structures during the operation. In addition, ultrasound recording during surgery make the image guided therapy safer and help the surgeon to remove a major portion of the tumor.

Innovation in the Health Sector

We stimulate the development of new, improved Norwegian health products – based on requirements in the health sector. A large proportion of our activities is concerned with stimulating ideas. We organise meetings at which user groups, suppliers, research and development groups and the public sector support apparatus get together to exchange and implement good ideas. We are responsible for the activities of the InnoMed innovation programme in mid-Norway, and we also run supplier development and networking programmes for health-sector companies.

Ultrasound and Image Guided Therapy

With our medical technology, surgeons can see and operate within the body. This surgical technique is possible because the surgeon navigates by advanced three-dimensional maps that show him the way around the inside of the body. 3D ultrasonic images enable the surgeon to see changes in the tissue during the operation itself. The system has been developed by research groups in Trondheim. Thanks to close collaboration with clinicians at St. Olav's Hospital and NTNU, we in SINTEF have succeeded in combining real-time 2D ultrasonics with 3D images made with ultrasonics, MR (magnetic resonance) and x-rays.
