Treatment monitoring is critical for monitoring the recovery process. It is necessary to check the effectiveness of a specific treatment and to assess the course of a disease in order to ensure the patient receives optimal treatment. The results of this kind of monitoring can determine whether patients require different treatment.
Modern medical image processing methods can help doctors in this endeavor. This is why Fraunhofer IGD has developed various solutions, from innovative graph matching approaches for monitoring patients with liver tumors to new omics concepts for the era of big data, such as radiomics. Fraunhofer IGD’s solutions cover a multitude of application areas, such as in oncology or dermatology.
