Computer-Aided Diagnostic Sonography

An ultrasound computer-aided diagnosis system processes images, highlighting abnormalities in textures and shapes, assisting radiologists in the interpretation of medical images.

Today’s ultrasound is the most convenient, safe, and inexpensive medical modality that can be used to diagnose soft tissues. BitRefine group offers solutions for enhancing the standard diagnostic process by adding a support system that marks out potential regions of interest and recognized abnormalities for the radiologist. This makes the process less operator-dependent and improves overall accuracy of diagnosis.

The greatest part of our research is related to detection of different types of tumors. However, the use of medical sonography is so widespread that there is a great deal of room for further developments:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Cardiology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Gastroenterology
  • Gynecology
  • Neurology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Pulmonology
  • Urology

The technology of processing of ultrasound images is based on recognition of highly complex patterns, which is the area of machine learning and computer vision. The processing pipeline is generally the same, starting from image optimization and normalization, finishing with the classification engine. However, tuning is required for each organ and abnormality. Our expertise in machine learning allows us to select the most appropriate image-processing architecture for different types of ultrasonic images.
