Australian patent granted for SITORO® technology

Radiation detection made an enormous leap forward this week with an Australian innovation set to revolutionise industries such as medical imaging, security screening and minerals exploration.

Melbourne’s Southern Innovation was granted an Australian patent on 13 September 2007 for its innovative signal detection technology SITORO that decodes previously indecipherable data. SITORO is a computer-based algorithm that detects radiation faster and more accurately.

‘We are very excited to announce our new patent, recognising an Australian innovation that is really going to revolutionise the way radiation is detected and measured,’ said Southern Innovation’s Technical Director Paul Scoullar. ‘This technology is the product of years of research and development. Whether it be detecting antipersonnel landmines, tracking cancerous cells or screening cargo for potential terrorist threats, SITORO will have a big impact on many different industries’.
