The speed of the liquid lenses


The total body scan intends to image the full body of the patient with high-resolution images. However, the human body is not a flat surface, so we will need to take many pictures of the same region, each one focused at a different distance, and compute a super-resolved image combining the regions resolved in each image.

iToBoS project at the Cross Domain Conference for Machine Learning and Knowledge Extraction (CD-MAKE 2022)


iToBoS participated in the Cross Domain Conference for Machine Learning and Knowledge Extraction (CD-MAKE 2022) that took place in Vienna, Austria, in August 24, 2022.

The ISIC Archive


One of the objectives of the iToBoS project is to acquire a large dataset with different types of lesions from patients with diverse skin types, different phenotypes, and different degrees of UV damage.

Building of the iToBoS Cloud: EU Landscape


The goal of the Intelligent Total Body Scanner for Early Detection of Melanoma (iToBoS) project is to utilize the power of Artificial Intelligence and develop a new diagnostic device to combat melanoma, a highly dangerous type of skin cancer.

Computer Vision in Digital Pathology


The practice of pathology has undergone a foundational change over the last decade, largely thanks to the widespread adoption of whole slide imaging (WSI).

Outlook for AI Regulation worldwide


This article summarizes the main differences between MDR and the previous MDD; the first one is the new rules have the legal form of “regulation” and in contrast to “directive”, it enters directly into force in the EU Member States and does not have to be transferred into national law.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) used in healthcare


Despite the technology risks related to AI, the MDR regulatory frameworks does not include any specific requirements for the use of artificial intelligence in medical devices and no law, common specifications or harmonized standards exist to regulate AI application in medical devices.

ISO standards for histological examination


Melanoma diagnosis, after dermoscopy, is usually confirmed by histological examination on formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues.

Changes in the classification of healthcare software


In the MDR there is no special change for embedded software products; they follow the classification of the device of which they are a part.

Medical Regulations in Europe for Software and Artificial Intelligence


The new European Regulation on medical devices (MDR).
