IToBoS presented by Infobae in Argentina

The project has been presented by Infobae, one of the largest digital media in Argentina, leader in the Spanish-speaking world, with 84 million readers.

The news states that the European Union has chosen, within the framework of its Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, to finance a project led by the University of Girona (UdG), in Catalonia (northeast), to create a tool for the early detection of skin cancer.

The project consists of developing a body scanner that performs a comprehensive evaluation of patients and a melanoma in an anticipated and personalized way. The project, called iToBoS, will devise an artificial intelligence system capable of integrating information from different sources, from images of the skin surface to demographic data, medical records, and even genomic information from the patient through a saliva sample.

The project thus proposes a global system to holistically calculate the risk of each patient and diagnose skin diseases earlier and with more precision.

The UdG leads the international consortium of 19 organizations that are part of the project and that make up universities, institutions and companies from different European countries, joined by three hospitals, one of them from Australia.
