Innovation in Healthcare by Leveraging Artificial Intelligence March2024

On March 14th, the Faculty of Health Sciences in Celje hosted an international symposium entitled "Digitalisation in Healthcare and Artificial Intelligence: Innovations for a Greater Future". The symposium aimed to showcase the latest advancements in technology, with a particular focus on artificial intelligence, which is increasingly pivotal in the progression of modern medicine and healthcare.

The event was structured into three sessions, each highlighting distinct aspects of digitalisation's impact on healthcare. These included presentations of case studies demonstrating digitalisation's enhancements within health centres, discussions surrounding the integration of digitalisation and artificial intelligence in health worker education, and the unveiling of innovative applications of artificial intelligence for diagnostic purposes in medicine.

As a significant component of the symposium, Arctur's research engineer, Samo Eržen, presented two groundbreaking R&D projects within the medical field where Arctur is playing a significant role. Both projects aim to significantly enhance cancer detection through the utilisation of artificial intelligence.

The flagship project, CLASSICA (funded under the Horizon Europe Programme), seeks to elevate cancer surgery outcomes by integrating AI directly into the operating theatre. This project aims to clinically validate a pioneering AI-guided intraoperative decision-support technology across multiple clinics, surgical teams, and nations. The technology's primary function is to provide real-time differentiation between cancerous and non-cancerous tissues, thereby facilitating more precise surgical interventions. Arctur is responsible for refining and supporting the AI system in the Classica project, which involves system porting, co-designing the clinical system, developing the decision support system, verifying the software, creating user interfaces, and providing technical support.

The second project, QUSTom (also funded under the Horizon Europe initiative, specifically the Pathfinder Pilot Programme), is focused on revolutionising breast cancer diagnosis through the transformation of ultrasound-based techniques. This initiative aims to harness quantitative, high-resolution imaging to enhance the accuracy and efficacy of breast cancer diagnosis. ARCTUR supports the tech tasks and is responsible for the 3D HPC inversion software optimisation.

Through collaborative efforts with our partners, we aspire to develop novel methodologies facilitated by supercomputing capabilities. These methodologies will redefine breast cancer diagnosis, empowering women in their battle against this pernicious disease.
