Theme 1 - Clinical Diagnosis & Therapy

Theme 1 of the Sonopill project will investigate clinical potential of Ultrasound Capsule Endoscopy.  The initial goal is to identify the unmet clinical needs that may be fulfilled by Sonopill as a diagnostic or therapeutic device. During the development of Sonopill, members of Theme 1 will also examine multimodal imaging capabilities for the purposes of diagnosis and treatment at the bench level and progress with further refinement of Sonopill culminating in Translational studies for introduction into clinical practice.  Both bench and clinical research will be done in cooperation with Themes 2, 3, 4 and 5 in order to develop device specifications for optimisation and improved capsule-based endoscopic diagnosis.
