Understanding Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) in the DICOM world – 6 May, 15:00-17:00 (CEST)

The ability to visualize and reconstruct image planes from a base image enhances the radiologist’s diagnosis by providing alternative viewpoints of the medical imaging data. This course will explore concepts and techniques on how to rebuild a 3D DICOM data volume from a series of 2D images along a single plane of orientation. The session will be held by Rui Jesus, from BMD Software.


A Brief History of Pathology – The Evolution to the Digital Era from a Pathologist Perspective – 13 May, 15:00-16:00 (CEST)

This presentation will include some key historical facts about Pathology, basic notions of macroscopy and microscopy, and a pathologist’s perspective of digital pathology. This session will be presented by Lina Carvalho, Vitor Sousa, Rui Almeida from the Faculty of Medicine of Universidade de Coimbra


Towards histopathological diagnosis supported by artificial intelligence 13 May, 16:00-17:00 (CEST) 

In this session, different supervised Deep Learning methodologies, dataset annotation processes relying on “learn-by-example” strategies, and methods of strengthening the knowledge base provided by these datasets will be presented and discussed, with emphasis on high-resolution microscope imagery for histopathological analysis and diagnosis. This session with be held by Telmo Adão from Centro de Computação Gráfica.


Privacy challenges in medical data sharing – 20 May, 15:00-16:00 (CEST)

Data sharing in health studies can be innovative and capable of improving decision-making procedures, however, this action may raise certain issues by compromising people’s privacy. Over the last years, different strategies were proposed to address these challenges, and being aware of such problems and solutions is essential when dealing with sensitive data. This session will be provided by researcher João Almeida from IEETA – University of Aveiro/University of A Coruña


Using Rust to create fast and secure medical imaging software – 20 May, 16:00-17:00 (CEST)

In this session, you will see how to create production-ready software using the Rust programming language, with a quick overview of the language and the presentation of a few use cases involving WebAssembly and medical imaging de-identification. It will be provided by Eduardo Pinho of BMD Software.
