AUTOSCREEN: Automated system for medical screening and diagnosis
The AUTOSCREEN project was a collaboration between EPCC, a Danish medical imaging company (Visible Diagnostics), Imperial College of Science and several hospitals in Denmark, the Netherlands and Italy.
The objective of the AUTOSCREEN automated system was to improve the process of screening and diagnosis for diseases such as cancer. Using advanced medical imaging the system analysed tissue samples and identified those in need of further analysis by a professional cytologist. The automated system improved the efficiency of screening, reduced the time required for diagnosis and consequently the costs of screening.
