Euradiomics est un projet développé dans le cadre de projet européens de recherche.

Interreg logo

Avec le soutien du Fonds Européen de Développement Régional et la Wallonie. L'Union européenne investit dans votre avenir.

En matière de recherche, l’EMR dispose du potentiel qui lui permettrait de devenir l’une des régions leader en matière de développement et de commercialisation des solutions informatiques dans le domaine de l’imagerie médicale. Le chef de file de ce projet par exemple est animé par l’ambition de renforcer sa position en tant que leader du marché dans ce secteur émergeant de la recherche médicale. En partant de ces atouts, le projet vise à incorporer le développement de la nouvelle technologie de la radiomique dans des solutions logicielles novatrices et d’outils d’aide à la décision pour les médecins et les patients dans le domaine de l’oncologie.
Project

The Euradiomics project is financially funded by the Interreg EMR program. The total budget for the project is € 3.402.970,70 and Interreg is contributing € 1.701.485,35

Interreg Euregio-Maas-Rhine is one of the 60 Interreg areas in Europe where European Union funds are made available for cross-border collaboration. Its area covers parts of Belgium, Germany and The Netherland

Medical imaging has become the cornerstone of modern medicine, however many diseases cannot be detected by the human eye or properly assessed. Given the shortcomings in manual and semi-quantitative methods, it was necessary to develop an approach known as "Radiomics". Radiomics  is a breakthrough technology based on a unique image software to extract and obtain very large amounts of quantitative image features from standard medical images and translate them into radiomics signatures. Moreover, it is a method based on the principle of "Federated learning", which respects the privacy laws concerning patient information. With this technology we can now share Radiomics knowledge with the world whilst being in full compliance with legislation on the protection of privacy. This technology enables the analysis of millions of medical images without the data physically leaving the hospital/clinic/institute, thereby resolving possible privacy protection issue. The goal of this project is to continually provide sustainable marketing and product development for radiomics and that the analysis of medical image will be applied in the clinic as a standard of care. Additionally, radiomics signatures will be integrated into multifactorial decision support for both physicians and patients resulting in better care at lower costs.

Goals and Objectives of Euradiomics
The main goals are threefold :
  1. Maintain and/or install the image analysis solution in all hospitals participating in the project;
  2. To develop and validate a workflow between the participants, in chronological order: medical image analysis in a distributed manner without the images leaving the original hospital, development of clinically useful radiomics signatures, euregional validation of the signatures, integration of signatures in potentially marketable products (see point 3).
  3. test five types (a-e) of potential marketable products in the EURADIOMICS network, namely:

a) potentially patentable radiomics signatures.

b) image analysis software;

c) decision support systems for doctors;

d) decision support systems for patients ("decision tool");

e) e-learning modules.

The use of large volumes of medical images will enable better treatments for cancer patients, primarily within the Euregion, and then worldwide. This project also has a more specific objective: the development and marketing of "big data" technology within the fields of head and neck cancer and cancer of the esophagus, lungs and liver. Harnessing the petabytes of medical image data stored in hospitals all over the world, decision support systems can be validated to improve the diagnosis and semi-automatic treatment of cancer.
