Radio Imaging: Novel Diagnostic Detection
The NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd subsidiary of Necsa is responsible for innovation in a range of radiation-based products and services for healthcare, life sciences, and industry. We use radioactive isotopes and radiation science to 'see' images that are unobtainable through other means. Including soft tissue in medical diagnostics; element/mineral distribution in fossils and geological samples; or detecting failures and inclusions in solid objects e.g. metal objects in a non-destructive manner.
The radioisotopes paired with imaging equipment allows the diagnosis of various infections and has the potential to minimise the high rate of failure to detect solid objects.
Offering higher resolution and novel detection ability by developing innovative radioisotopes.
Our radiation based tools for detection are novel in the market and allow detection of images that are not possible with other techniques.
