Together with other European partners, LBMI is participating in projects established within the European Fourth Framework programme. LBMI was appointed one of the five international Telemedicine Consultants to WHO, Geneva in 1996 within the ESA/WHO COPINE project.
The three major product lines of LBMI include: Biomedical image processing systems, Telehealthcare and Telemedicine configurations. These products which are especially and initially developed for academic purposes have not yet been brought to the market. The laboratory-standard products will undergo industrial treatment before marketing.
LBMI is also involved in the ongoing ELISE II project, including four universities and five companies and institutes. The LBMI Biomedical Image Bank, linked to the sites of other partners across Europe, will provide services to researchers and academic environment.
LBMI organises field tests and demonstrations, both on national and international basis, employing different telecommunication infrastructure and network available.
Furthermore, LBMI is preparing to start a Telepathology project linking Europe and Latin America. This is a prerequisite for the Europe/Latin America ISDN Telepathology Services which should be established after the pilot project has been accomplished.
