Stockholm Medical Image Laboratory and Education

Overview of Services

Founded in 2001 as a core facility at Karolinska Institutet & Karolinska University Hospital, SMILE is reestablished in 2019, with the purpose to facilitate the evaluation of medical digital images, irrespective of source.

SMILE is the translational hub where clinicians, researchers and PhD-students from academy, healthcare and industry meet and benefit from the collected competence in image analysis, visualization and quantification. While using the images, tools and innovations for improved diagnostics and patient care, near collaboration with medtech companies is a prerequisite.
