This chapter describes the IMED project, a multidisciplinary, transnational effort to endow clinicians with state-of-the-art computer-based methods to assist them in the diagnosis of new breast cancer cases and to provide innovative training tools in specialized academic programs.
It involves research and medical institutions in Portugal and Spain and its main achievements include (1) designing a workflow for radiographic data acquisition, annotation and analysis, (2) developing a workstation for computer-aided diagnosis and (3) creating a team of specialized radiologists, mathematicians and computer engineers sharing a common understanding and methodology on the domain.
