Welcome to the public website of the FP7 Collaborative Project
Diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory and arthritic diseases using a combined approach based on ultrasound, optoacoustic and hyperspectral imaging

iacobus is supported by the European Commission's 7th RTD Framework Programme
Collaborative Project No. 305760
Project start: January 2013


The iacobus project will provide a novel image based diagnostic and monitoring application for arthritic inflammation of finger joints which significantly exceeds the existing standards in terms of image resolution and sensitivity and thereby allows an earlier and more reliable diagnosis.

For being widely usable as a screening tool, the diagnosis shall further be based on a non-invasive and cost-efficient imaging approach.
