Adaptix Ltd had today announced that it will receive business support from the Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Hub as part of its SME Leaders Programme. As a promising UK innovator, Adaptix will receive training and expertise to ensure it is able to bring to market a world class planar (flat panel) 3D X-ray product.
The SME Leaders programme helps engineering entrepreneurs maximise their high-growth potential by providing training and development and access to the Academy’s fellowship – a network of over 300 business leaders possessing expertise spanning the entire engineering and technology spectrum.
The majority of X-rays conducted today use 2D imagery because the equipment needed to undertake 3D X-raying is expensive and bulky. Adaptix will make 3D radiology widely available, improving the accuracy of diagnosing conditions such as cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, lung cancer and osteoporosis.
Ana Avaliani, Head of Enterprise, Royal Academy of Engineering comments, ‘The UK is blessed with some of the brightest minds in engineering and technology. The engineering profession is already vital to the UK economy, but by helping UK innovators realise their potential we can consolidate the country’s position as an engineering world leader.”
