Computer-aided diagnosis for prostate cancer using multi-parametric MRI

Doctoral thesis “Computer-aided diagnosis for prostate cancer using multi-parametric MRI.”   By Guillaume Lemaître   Supervised by Robert Martí Marly , Jordi Freixenet Bosch , Fabrice Meriaudeau   Abstract Prostate cancer (CaP) is the second most diagnosed cancer in men all over the world. CaP growth is characterized by two main types of evolution: (i) the slow-growing tumours progress slowly and usually remain confined to the prostate gland; (ii) the fast-growing tumours metastasize from prostate gland to other organs, which might lead to incurable diseases. Therefore, early diagnosis and risk assessment play major roles in patient treatment and follow-up. In…
