The goal of the project is to develop a sophisticated software for videokymography (VKG) which will enable automatic evaluation of medical videokymographic recordings of vibrating vocal folds and arrive at correct medical diagnosis. Further goal is to develop a certified method of VKG evaluation to be used in clinical practice.
Duration: 2014 - 2017
The aim of the proposed project is the development of a new ultrasonic equipment (US), allowing early detection of breast cancer and reduce the need to use the ionizing radiation during examinations. The aim is to eliminate the disadvantages of current ultrasonic systems in the diagnosis of breast cancer, which hinders its use.
