Automated methods on Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis

Doctoral thesis “Automated methods on Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis”   By Eloy Roura Pérez   Supervised by Xavier Lladó Bardera , Arnau Oliver Malagelada   Abstract Nowadays, medical imaging is one of the most important tools for doctors when studying the human body. Given the wide variety of images, the information provided, and the huge amount of research and clinical practice performed around the world, we could say that medical imaging has become a new science. The imaging techniques used depend mainly on the part of the body and the disease studied, in order to better appreciate the…


Busy month for the Medical Imaging group

Very busy month for the Medical Imaging group with first, the visit of VICOROB’s member Oliver Diaz to the Technical University of Varna (TUV) in Bulgaria and second, the presentation of 3 research posters at the 13th International Workshop on Breast Imaging (IWDM) in Sweden.   Between June 6th – 9th, Oliver Diaz visited the laboratory of Computer Simulations in Medicine of the TUV and gave an invited talk entitled “The power of image processing in multimodal breast imaging” at the special session “eHealth and Networking for Advanced Cancer Detection“, as part of the IEEE Black Sea Conference on Communications…


We participate in EMRA 2016

European Marine Robotics community gathers together every year in the EMRA workshop. This event, created three years ago as a dissemination event of the main EU marine robotics related projects, is an event in projection where the main stakeholders on marine robotics field discuss, present and contrast their opinions on the sector.   2016 edition took place in Newcastle University (UK), a perfect framework for two long days of networking for further projects, events and business!   In May 2017, the event will take place in Girona, at the Science and Technology Park of the University of Girona.   See…


Automated brain tissue segmentation of magnetic resonance images in multiple sclerosis

Doctoral thesis “Automated brain tissue segmentation of magnetic resonance images in multiple sclerosis”   By Sergi Valverde Supervised by Dr. Arnau Oliver, Dr. Xavier Lladó   Abstract Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic immune-mediated disabling neurological disease affecting the central nervous system, in which the insulating covers of the nerve cells in the spinal chord and brain are damaged. MS is characterized by the presence of lesions in the brain, predominantly in the white matter (WM) tissue of the brain. Due to the sensitivity of structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) disseminating WM lesions in time and space, it…


An approach to melanoma classification exploiting polarization information

Doctoral thesis “An approach to melanoma classification exploiting polarization information”   By Rastgoo, Mojdeh Supervised by García Campos, Rafael; Marzani, Frank; Morel, Olivier   Abstract Malignant melanoma is the deadliest of skin cancers and causes the majority of deaths in comparison to other skin-related malignancies. Yet it is the most treatable type of cancer, thanks to its early diagnosis. Subsequently, early diagnosis is crucial for patient survival rate and numerous Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems have been proposed by the research community to assist dermatologists in early diagnosis. These systems are based on the most common skin imaging modality, cross-polarized dermoscopy….


Alumnes ‘experts’ en programació de manera divertida i transversal

“Early mastery: How to playfully motivate schoolkids to master computer programming” és el títol del projecte finançat per la Comissió Europea, dins el programa Erasmus+, que lidera el grup de recerca UdiGitalEdu de la Universitat de Girona. Amb set socis més de diferents països europeus –Romania, Itàlia, Gran Bretanya i França–, l’objectiu principal és fer que nens i nenes de 6 i 16 anys descobreixin, aprenguin i esdevinguin ‘experts’ en programació.   En l’actualitat, la programació es considera una habilitat indispensable per afrontar les demandes d’una societat lligada a les noves tecnologies. L’equip del projecte ‘Early mastery’ ha proporcionat eines…


Ús de les tecnologies d’escaneig 3D en l’empresa

L’objectiu de  la jornada permetrà introduir-nos en el món de les tecnologies 3D i visualitzar les diferents aplicacions a l’empresa que a dia d’avui ja es poden fer.   És una jornada impulsada per SICNOVA Girona, fabricant i distribuïdor de maquinària 3D i el Patronat Politècnica.   Amb el suport de la Universitat de Girona, la Cambra de comerç de Girona, l’empresa AQSENSE i VICOROB. Josep Forest serà l’encarregat de presentar “Els 5 passos clau per a fer de la teva idea una realitat: com col.laborar amb la UdG com a proveïdor tecnològic en visió 3D”   Al finalitzar l’acte…


Kick-off meeting of the SMARTER project

Breast cancer screening based on mammography (MG) has had a major impact on reducing mortality at affordable cost. However, overdiagnosis, overtreatment, and the lack of sensitivity of mammography, especially in women with dense breasts, need to be addressed to improve screening. More effective screening cannot be achieved with the generalised use of MG for all the population; personalisation is required where the density of a womans breasts or increased cancer risk is assessed prior to determining whether or not additional imaging (i.e. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 3D ultrasound (ABUS), or tomosynthesis (DBT)) is necessary. Hence, the question is no longer…
