European project IVP successfully completed

March 06, 2006

The joint project "Intracorporal Videoprobe IVP", a development project realised with four partners within the European IST programme, was successfully completed at the end of 2005. Miniaturised videoprobes for medical engineering with specially adapted CMOS image sensors, micromechanical components, and image processing and diagnosis software have been developed by a consortium managed by IMS. Thus very small-sized high-dynamic image sensors make it possible to produce small endoscopes.
