Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: High Performance Computing Applied to Medical Data and Bioinformatics

Main Objective:
This project aims to develop parallel and scalable
algorithms for processing a huge volume of medical data, associated
with breast cancer in Portuguese women, in the Microsoft
Portugal High Performance Computing Lab. Algorithms for segmentation
of 2D objects are taken into account and new algorithms
for 3D and 4D image segmentation will be investigated
in order to allow the automatic identification of breast cancer.
The project also explores the problem of 2D and 3D object reconstruction
from ultrasound data regarding breast cancer, based on
parallel algorithms.
