Top 10 ways AI is improving the healthcare industry

iToBoS project presented in AI Magazine as an AI tool to improving melanoma screening.

iToBoS dermoscopy

Dermoscopy is known as surface microscopy, dermatoscopy or epiluminescence microscopy and it consists of an imaging method that allows increase the lesions 10X to 120X leading a visualization of some structures located within the skin (epidermis and dermis).

Masking and anonymization tools for datasets in iToBoS

In September 2022 (M18 of the project) we submitted deliverable D4.1 - Masking and anonymization tools for datasets. We bring here some highlights from that deliverable.

How skin cancer AI handle collision tumors and borderline cases

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. It is is deadly at late stage but can be cured with high survival rate if being detected early.

Reviewing state of the art in computer aided skin lesion diagnosis using clinical images

In the past decades, there have been developments in computational methods for helping dermatologists diagnose skin cancer early. Computerized analysis of pigmented skin lesions (PSLs) is a growing field of research.

Product Validation

Validation of medical devices is concerned with the end product and – according to a FDA’s definition - it intends “to check that the device / system and its specifications conform with the user needs and the intended use(s)”

Product Verification

As already mentioned, medical device verification is often done at sub-system / module level and often in parallel with the design and development phases. It requires the availability of the specifications and of testing procedures / methods.

Verification and validation of medical devices

Even if the two terms are often used interchangeably, they refer to two different types of analysis.
