Medical imaging procedures like ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) play a critical role in medical diagnosis and therapy. However, to date no single instrument has been able to intelligently structure and evaluate the different measurement methods (e.g. lab data, images and reports) and make them accessible for quick and easy comprehension.
MEDICO has developed procedures that recognize anatomical structures while automatically classifying data. Using semantic technologies and imaging procedures, MEDICO improves medical diagnosis quality by cross-referencing data, images and treatment reports from different databases in order to identify pathological change. Algorithms designed by the MEDICO research team automatically compare current CT images with images taken prior to treatment in order to determine whether the prescribed therapy is working.
Other conspicuous indicators not covered by CT imaging are evaluated by comparing patient data with a larger, external data set (e.g. university medical center) in order to determine recommendations for further testing and treatment. Using the ORDO application, the responsible physician can also conduct a quick search of the relevant scientific literature relevant to the patient illness. Medical practitioners and patients alike benefit from the diagnostic and therapeutic advantages made possible by MEDICO.
- Intelligent research and structure of medical information (e.g. images, reports and texts) to provide information for use in a number of health care scenarios.
- Diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making support
- Swift and efficient provision of medical information in research and day-to-day hospital routine procedures
