Title Image-based information technologies for cancer diagnostics

The talk will be devoted to such important problem as cancer diagnostics by means of image processing tools. Every year, in Belarus we have a number of international projects in the area of medical informatics for raising effectiveness of diagnostic processes. Developed projects include all operational levels of medical institutions from workstations for doctors to a regional system with elements of telemedicine. The presentation will show main projects and systems created in Belarus, discuss their results and include main recommendations for developing e-health systems. Scientific results in the area of histology/cytology image interpretation will also be shown. Developed image processing tools for medical image feature extraction will be described. Computer analysis of cytological images for differential diagnosis of thyroid diseases will be shown. Examples of systems for making diagnosis of cancer from image analysis will also be shown. Automated Information Analytical Systems for Medical Institution that are based on electronic medical history and is designed to control an information streams of collecting, analyzing and handling data from medical investigations will be shown The automated Radiological Information Systems will be described that are base for creating telemedicine network and designed for collecting, storage, analyzing and transfer of medical images.
