DASH Webinar: Identifying diseases earlier using AI-based Imaging Biomarkers

When:We 21-09-2022 16:00 - 17:00
Lung cancer, coronary heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common diseases. Together, these three are called the "Big 3". Due to the ageing population and other factors, the incidence of the Big 3 is increasing. Early detection with early treatment is crucial to reduce the burden of the Big 3 diseases. ​​​​​​​

The B3CARE project
evaluates early stages of these three diseases using low-dose computed tomography (CT) scans. Measurement of imaging biomarkers on CT can help to identify individuals with early stages of the Big-3 diseases, before symptoms occur. However, this evaluation of imaging biomarkers is labour intensive. The B3CARE project therefore automates the evaluation of CT scans and builds a secure system for validation of AI-based tools.

In this new webinar on 21 September, you will learn more about B3CARE, imaging biomarkers and setting up automated CT scan evaluation.
