Image sensor shortlisted for British Engineering Excellence Awards
Dynamitey The world’s largest sensor for medical imaging, which was created by University of Lincoln researchers, is in the running for a prestigious award.

A consortium led by Nigel Allinson, Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering at Lincoln, created “DynAMITe”, the wafer-scale chip that is 200 times larger than the processing chips that lie at the heart of current PCs and laptops.

The images produced by the 12.8 cm square chip will mean that in future doctors will be able to diagnose cancer and see the impact of radiotherapy treatment far more precisely than ever before.

Now DynAMITe has been shortlisted for a British Engineering Excellence award and winners will be announced on 13 October 2011.
