vivaMOS specialises in the design and manufacture of large-area CMOS image sensors for X-ray flat panel detectors.

The advent of CMOS-based X-ray detectors for medical applications is improving surgical outcomes, enabling better and faster diagnosis of cancer, and will in future lead to enhanced treatment methods with higher patient success rates. These improvements are underpinned by the capability of CMOS image sensors to offer better quality images at higher frame rates (live HD video) with lower noise (reduced X-ray radiation doses). Large-scale CMOS-based X-ray detectors are causing an exciting technology shift in the medical imaging market. Through in-house technology advances and with the support of existing research links, our ambition is to become the leading supplier of CMOS-based X-ray detectors worldwide.
