Artificial intelligence for early detection of spondyloarthritis in medical imaging: development and validation of novel CT and MRI use cases for clinical practice.
Supported project of Jans Lennart : This project entails the further data collection for clinical validation studies of an MRI and CT use case for early detection of spondyloarthritis, based on artificial intelligence. We will segment and annotate data collected in national and international hospitals, guide the algorithm development and survey the technical and regulatory requirements up to full implementation in clinical practice as a cloud-based and globally accessible application.
