The iFIND (intelligent Fetal Imaging and Diagnosis) Project

July 8th, 2020

In September 2012, the Wellcome Trust (WT) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) launched a one-off initiative to support development of innovative engineering solutions to intractable problems in medicine and public health.

In response to this challenge, a KCL-led consortium was created, involving Imperial College, Florence University, Toronto Hospital for sick kids and GSTT, and The iFIND (intelligent Fetal Imaging and Diagnosis)  Project was proposed with the goal of  radically changing current antenatal screening practice, focusing on the anomaly scan which is routinely performed by ultrasound (US) at around 20 weeks gestational age.
