Gastrointestinal cancer is responsible for 22% of all cancer deaths worldwide and an early detection is fundamental for a good prognosis, usually achieved via endoscopic inspection of gastrointestinal tissues. Difficulties arise in the constantly evolving imaging technologies, which require doctors to constantly relearn visual cancer patterns for effective screening. Our CAGE research line envisions the usage of interactive technologies to support the training and decisions of clinicians, and is a strongly established cooperation between IT, UP and IPO-Porto. In a nutshell BRIGE will explore the creative synergy of both research groups in order to advance computer vision algorithms for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) applied to gastroenterology imaging. Specific objectives are: a) Research new feature detectors based on wavelets for superior cancer detection; b) Fusion of local and global texture descriptors for describing pre-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions in gastroenterology images.
