What is polarized light?

In the iToBoS scanner, polarized light will be used to illuminate the skin of the patient. In this blogpost we want to explore what it means when we are talking about optical polarization.

Skin cancer, AI detection of melanoma and 100+ other types of skin tumors 

Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. In the US alone, between 3 to 5 million new cases are reported each year, with treatment costs of approximately $9 billion.

Digital trends in the health sector

iToBoS members attended the Mobile World Congress not only to present the project proposal and receive feedback from the ecosystem, but also to discover and learn more about the latest trends in IT solutions applied to personalized medicine.

Sunburn explainer

You’ve probably heard it said that the main cause of melanomas is too much sun exposure and many of us are familiar with the painful red skin, blisters and peeling that follow too much time in the sun. But what actually happens in the skin during a sunburn?

PatClarC: Using pattern concept activation vectors for noise-robust model debugging

The scientific work "PatClarC: Using pattern concept activation vectors for noise-robust model debugging", with the support of iToBoS project, has been published.

Methods for 3D reconstructions in dermoscopy

In the iToBoS project, the so-called 3D cameras are used. These cameras enable us to make a virtual representation of the patient. This can help the dermatologists to match dermoscopic images of lesions with the lesions on the body of the patient.

Skin Cancers: Data and facts

The most updated source for worldwide cancer data is represented by the GLOBOCAN 2020 report of the International Agency of Cancer Research (IACR).

Finding and removing Clever Hans: Using explanation methods to debug and improve deep models

The scientific work "Finding and removing Clever Hans: Using explanation methods to debug and improve deep models", with the support of iToBoS project, has been published.

The value of clinical data

Over the last half century, clinicians and researchers have made enormous advances in detecting and treating melanoma.
