As part of a series of events coordinated by Scottish Development International (SDI) around the Rugby World Cup 2019, SINAPSE researchers were invited to Japan to showcase world-leading work from Scotland on medical imaging and artificial intelligence (AI).

The delegation from Scotland included Prof Alison Murray from the University of Aberdeen, Prof Emily Jefferson from the University of Dundee, Prof Sotirios Tsaftaris from the University of Edinburgh, and Dr Ken Sutherland, President of Canon Medical Research Europe Ltd.

In presentations at the British Embassy Tokyo and at an event in Yokohama co-organised with Canon Medical, the visitors promoted Scotland's growing reputation for medical imaging and AI, as exemplified by the recently launched iCAIRD and PICTURES projects, and met with Japanese colleagues to discuss opportunities for research collaborations and industrial R&D investment.
