Harness Innovations in Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence -
for the Welfare of Patients Worldwide!

Over the past two decades, biomedical imaging has become an essential component of both clinical care and scientific research. Yet, it is still subject to constraints in data acquisition and processing, which limit image quality and resolution and make imaging devices more bulky and difficult to operate. Furthermore, image interpretation by radiologists is naturally prone to variability and discordance.

Advancements in signal acquisition and processing, as well as theManya1a widespread adaptation of artificial intelligence (AI), may help overcome these challenges and make medical imaging more efficient and accessible to everyone.

The Manya Igel Center for Biomedical Engineering and Signal Processing, headed by Prof. Yonina Eldar, brings together scientists and clinicians to address health challenges of relevance to biomedical imaging and pathology. The Center’s goal is to harness the vast expertise at the Weizmann Institute of Science in signal processing and AI for the benefit of patients. The uniqueness of our approach is that it targets the entire diagnostic chain, from the hardware and physics of the imaging devices, through the data processing and AI, through the clinical implementation.

The fruitful collaboration between Weizmann scientists and physicians, facilitated by the center, includes clinical studies for various medical applications: diagnosis of malignancies, monitoring of inflammatory diseases, Covid-19 detection and outcome prediction, and many more.

Our growing list of collaborators includes physicians from hospitals in both Israel and abroad:

  • Rabin Medical Center Manya2c
  • Schneider’s Children Medical Center 
  • Rambam Medical Center 
  • Shaare-Zedek Medical Center 
  • Sheba Medical Center 
  • Emek Medical Center 
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center 
  • NYU Langone 
  • Massachusetts General Hospital
