The project BD2Decide is funded by the European Union within its Horizon 2020 framework program. Its aim is to develop a prediction model for the re-occurrences of tumors in the head & neck area. BD2Decide is the successor of the FP7 funded project OraMod, whose focus was on cancers of the oral cavity – now extended to the complete head & neck area.
The task of the competence center VHT is the development of a Head & neck atlas for an automatic segmentation of relevant anatomical structures of head & neck in MRI data sets. Furthermore, tools for a semi-automatic segmentation of tumors in MRI data and their analysis will be created. These developments are part of a Radiomics workflow for the extraction of a large amount of quantitative features that will supply the re-occurrence prediction model. The software prototype developed by VHT will be made available to the clinical partners.
