UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering



Here at UCL, we are developing advanced imaging techniques that provide clinicians with increasingly high-resolution images inside the body, allowing them to monitor patients’ progression of disease and response to therapy with greater accuracy than ever before. 
Another great shift in monitoring health comes through the development of digital technologies that turn common mobile phones and wearable devices into accessible monitoring tools. Advancements in this area promise to revolutionise the care of patients with long-term conditions such as diabetes by allowing them to self-monitor and self-manage their conditions from the comfort of their own home. 

The case-studies below offer a glimpse of the healthcare engineering research activity within monitoring at UCL. If you would like your research project to be featured here, please email healthcare-eng@ucl.ac.uk.
