Support Program THESEUS MEDICO

  • Duration:

The vision of the application scenario MEDICO is: Establishing of image syntax and semantics based on image vocabularies to build an intelligent scalable robust search engine for the medical domain, with applications in Clinical Decision Support and Computer Aided Diagnosis.

In MEDICO a universally usable search engine for medical images will be created. It will permit direct semantic access to medical image databases to support individualised diagnoses and therapy plans, as well as biomedical and epidemiological research. The target group consists of physicians, researchers and application developers in the area of medical informatics and healthcare IT.
