Description

iToBoS (Intelligent Total Body Scanner for Early Detection of Melanoma) project aims at developing an AI diagnostic platform for early detection of melanoma. The platform includes a novel total body scanner and a Computer Aided Diagnostics (CAD) tool to integrate various data sources such as medical records, genomics data and in vivo imaging. This approach will lead to a highly patient-tailored, early diagnosis of melanoma. The project will develop and validate an AI cognitive assistant tool to empower healthcare practitioners, offering a risk assessment for every mole. Beyond integrating all available information about the patient to personalise the diagnostic, it will provide methods for visualising, explaining and interpreting AI models, thus overcoming the “black box” nature of current AI enabled CAD systems, and providing dermatologists with valuable information for their clinical practice. The new total body scanner will be based on an existing prototype developed by 3 of the project partners but powered with high-resolution cameras equipped with liquid lenses. These novel lenses, based on two immiscible fluids of different refractive index, will allow achieving unprecedented image quality of the whole body. The integration of such images with all available patient data using machine learning will lead to a new dermoscopic diagnostic tool providing prompt, reliable and highly personalised diagnostics for optimal judgement in clinical practice.
