Collaboration between UdG and Surrey University

Oliver Diaz, postdoctoral researcher at ViCOROB, has been appointed as Visiting Academic Researcher in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Science (University of Surrey, UK). For an initial period of 1 year, Dr Diaz will collaborate closely with the Surrey’s Biomedical Imaging group, lead by Dr Kevin Wells. This position will boost the collaboration between both parts and will allow further investigation of common research lines started in the past.   The Biomedical Imaging group is a multidisciplinary research group based at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (http://www.surrey.ac.uk/cvssp/). It focuses on medical imaging technologies (X-ray mammography, MRI,…

ASSURE FP7 PROJECT 1st REVIEW

With less than a year left to conclude the ASSURE project, a party of 6 people from ViCOROB met with the rest of partners on the 12th and 13th of January at Copenhagen. Despite the cold and strong gusts of wind we all endured, the meeting was a success as shown by the positive feedback given by an European reviewer present. Also during the meeting, updated overviews of all 10 work-packages were presented. Furthermore, the event was used to run several discussion groups about screening with breast ultrasound and breast magnetic resonance, as well as to discuss on how to…

Konstantin Korotkov defends his PhD thesis “Automatic change detection in multiple pigmented skin lesions”

Malignant melanoma is the rarest and deadliest of skin cancers causing three times more deaths than all other skin-related malignancies combined. Fortunately, in its early stages, it is completely curable, making a total body skin examination (TBSE) a fundamental procedure for many patients. During TBSE, dermatologists look for pigmented skin lesions (PSLs) exhibiting typical melanoma signs as well as PSLs undergoing the rapid changes characteristic of cancer. Accompanied by clinical and dermoscopic baseline photography, a TBSE can be very tedious and time-consuming, especially for patients with numerous lesions. In addition, establishing correct body-to-image and image-to-image lesion correspondences can be extremely…
