Guido Weide (VU): SoundTomics
Picture yourself as a doctor who needs to improve someone’s muscle function. The way our muscles are built strongly relates to the way they function.
With neuromuscular and chronic diseases, but also with ageing, doctors are faced with the task to find treatments that prevent deterioration of muscle function or even improves it. Optimizing and individualizing treatments that aim to improve muscle function is difficult and requires insight in the architecture of muscles.
Wouldn’t it be helpful if a doctor was able to look inside the muscles to tailor the treatment to the need of the individual?
At SoundTomics, it is our goal is to enable doctors to obtain such information. To achieve this, we have designed a portable device that enables doctors to make quick and detailed 3D images of entire muscles anywhere and at any time.
