The EUCAIM (European Federation for Cancer Images) project is the cornerstone of the European Cancer Imaging Initiative, launched by the European Commission, within the framework of the European Beating Cancer Plan, emphasized Prof. Manolis Tsiknakis, as Coordinator of the ProCAncer-I project and Affiliated Professor at the Computational Biomedicine Laboratory (CBML), speaking at the Health IT conference. As he mentioned, the project is based on the results of the “AI for Health Imaging (AI4HI)” initiative and the projects funded by it, among which is the ProCΑncer-I project (https://www.procancer-i.eu) – a project coordinated by the Foundation for Research and Technology.

It is the first of its kind European “pan-cancer” project that aims to give easy access to cancer images to clinicians, doctors and researchers with the aim of developing artificial intelligence (AI) tools that will support more accurate and faster clinical decision-making, diagnoses, and determining the most appropriate treatment for cancer patients. EUCAIM will address the data fragmentation that exists in existing cancer imaging medical image repositories and develop a distributed Atlas of Cancer Imaging with more than 60 million anonymized cancer imaging data from more than 100,000 patients, accessible to clinicians, physicians, and researchers across the EU to develop and evaluate reliable AI tools.

The 6th Health IT Conference in Athens, on the 17th and 18th of October, focusing on Digital Transformation in the era of EHDS.
