Wednesday, February 29 saw the official end of the ambitious HAMAM (Highly Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnosis through Integration of Biological Knowledge, Novel Imaging Modalities, and Modelling) project, which has culminated in the successful development of a prototype clinical workstation, combining the various technologies and information required to characterise and classify suspicious breast tissue.
The results of the project, including the workstation, were presented at a public session in the Austria Center Vienna on March 1, as a satellite event prior to the European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2012). A consortium of nine scientific and industrial partners from five European countries, plus the USA, contributed to the project, which was coordinated by the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research.
The project coordination of HAMAM was done by the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR). Scientific coordinator of the project was Prof. Horst Hahn from Fraunhofer MEVIS.
