CIMTI (Center for the Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technologies), chooses four projects to support their development and commercialisation. Two of them are a new method of diagnosis of noninvasive colorectal cancer that will allow a more effective diagnosis and avoid unnecessary colonoscopy and a new urinary probe model to increase patient comfort and reduce the number of infections. These projects emerge from Catalan public hospitals.
CIMTI is an organization that emerges from the agreement between the Health Department, through the Catalan Health Quality and Assessment Agency (AQuAS), Fundación LEITAT and the Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT) of Boston. The objective is to promote projects that have a global social and health impact that arise from Catalan research centers and hospitals and primary healthcare centers. And it is sought that they have a global impact.
