We presented the results of our work as part of the ASSURE project #ECR2016

The 28th annual European Congress of Radiology (ECR) took place last week at the Austria Center Vienna. From March 2nd to March 5th, more than 25,000 (onsite and online) participants had the opportunity to learn the latest trends and research on radiology from first hand. ECR also counted with the presence of around 300 worldwide companies of the medical field, professional societies as well as research projects.     In this sense, the FP7 European project ASSURE, where ViCOROB took part as consortium member with the lead of Dr Robert Martí, was present at the congress with its own booth….


ViCOROB rep la visita d’un equip d’investigadors del Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering

ViCOROB es consolida com un model a seguir a nivell internacional en l’àmbit de la robòtica i la visió submarina. Un equip d’investigadors coreans visiten Girona per a formar-se i aprendre de l’experiència a la Universitat de Girona.   El Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO) es va fundar l’any 1973 i és un dels desenvolupadors líder del seu país en tecnologia relacionada amb l’enginyeria oceànica. El seu objectiu és fer recerca aplicada per resoldre les necessitats del mercat nacional i internacional. Actualment, al KRISO es treballa en enginyeria naval (desenvolupament de vaixells), sistemes de control del…


Alta participació a la #FLLGirona

El torneig d’aquest any, organitzat per la UdG, Fundació Princesa de Girona i Fundació Scientia aquest cap de setmana a l’Escola Politècnica Superior, reptava 35 equips gironins a buscar solucions per a la gestió de residus.     Un repte basat en el món real   Cada any, la FLL llança un nou repte basat en un problema del món real. El repte té 3 parts:   1. Projecte Científic, en què els equips han d’identificar un problema real relacionat amb la temàtica del repte, proposar una solució innovadora i compartir les seves experiències amb una presentació.   2. Desenvolupament…


Oliver Diaz attended the training course “Achieving Quality in Diagnostic and Screening Mammography”

Last week, the member of the Image Analysis Laboratory Oliver Diaz attended the training course “Achieving Quality in Diagnostic and Screening Mammography” as part of his Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow. This course, the 8th within the EUTEMPE·RX series for medical physics experts, was held at the Dutch reference centre for mammography screening (LRCB), Nijmegen, The Netherlands. During 5 days, all attendees got an overview of a number of breast imaging technologies from a range of specialists: medical physicists, epidemiologists, CAD engineers, radiologists and radiographers. Several topics were covered, such European protocols to measure image quality for mammography and breast tomosynthesis, estimation…


International Experience: Ferran Roure

These last three month were different. The past 23th of September I took the plane to London to spend the last part of the year working at UCL (University College of London). Located at the center of London, UCL is one of the main European universities (with more than 30000 students and up to 6000 researchers). With professor Niloy Mitra I began an interesting project about applying 3D registration methods for environment reconstruction. The main idea is apply these methods to rescue robots in order to achieve good 3D reconstructions without any sensor or extra information.        …


On our way to Chicago: Annual Meeting #RSNA15

This year, the Radiological Society of North-America (RSNA) celebrated its 100 anniversary and the VICOROB group wanted to join the celebration. Dr. Joan Martí, Dr. Robert Marti and Eloy Garcia (PhD Student) flew to Chicago to attend the annual meeting of the RSNA. From medicine to CAD systems, the RSNA meeting was a look back at the evolution of radiology and a look ahead to its future.   During that week, radiologists and researchers from around the world, introduced the latest research in radiology, medicine and medical imaging. Breast, brain, gastro, heart, any organ of the body was represented.  Magnetic…


After hard work, good advances on breast cancer detection

On the 2 and 3 of November Barcelona was witness to the last meeting of ASSURE, a research project funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme. ASSURE includes 10 European partners from 6 countries, including ViCOROB, and its main goal is to investigate personalised breast cancer screening. During the last 3 years, techniques such mammography, magnetic resonance and automated 3D breast ultrasound have been studied to improve breast cancer detection. This has produced more than 30 scientific publications, 3 patents and a large number of software tools which are currently being tested in clinical facilities.    …
