Manchester Imaging Ltd are using software solutions to capture cavities and train the next generation of dentists

Based on a collaboration between the School of Dentistry and the Faculty of Imaging Sciences, Manchester Imaging was established in 2014 to focus on preventive dentistry, in particular the development of AI software solutions to identify abnormalities in dental imaging.

AssistDent®, the company’s first commercial product, was launched in 2019 and is being used by community dentists to help them find early signs of tooth decay and by university dental schools to train dental students.
