Improving lung cancer outcomes via an automated tumour characterisation approach
Fast and accurate diagnosis is crucial for the effective treatment of all types of cancer. Unfortunately, the advanced detection, segmentation and characterisation of tumours hinges on the laborious manual or semi-manual processes used, restricting treatment accuracy and treatment response monitoring. The EU-funded AUTO.DISTINCT project will introduce, demonstrate and evaluate a groundbreaking, fully automated software for the fast, accurate, observer-independent and reproducible detection and volumetric segmentation of lung tumours and metastases on CT images. The project's work will radically improve tumour characterisation in the case of lung cancer patients by refining the detection of lesions on CT images, with significant impacts on patient outcomes and radiotherapy treatment accuracy.
