Medical Image Analysis on Grid platform | 2008
This project, developed in collaboration with CETA-CIEMAT, FMUP and FEUP, aims to capitalize on the GRID computing resources available for activities in medical diagnosis support. The creation of databases with medical images, in this case mammography, and the development of algorithms for image analysis will provide relevant information to clarify the current methods of diagnosis or to develop new analysis tools.
Within this project a researcher, currently working on his PhD, went to Trujillo in the Spanish Extremadura, to test the algorithms developed and prepare tools for access to the database of medical images.
Recent contacts with the service of Medical Imaging at the Faculty of Medicine of Porto allowed to start a collaboration to create a national database on mammography.
