Welcome!

NEWS:

  • We are participating in national project, called BCCT.plan. The tools developed by the three-year, PT2020 funded BCCT.plan (Ferramenta 3D para o planeamento do tratamento conservador do cancro da mama) aims to provide objective tools to personalize surgical planning. This tool will enable alternative surgical strategies to be explored and the consequences of the available options, with respect to the appearance of the breast under analysis. Using a combination of 3D reconstruction with images of the external shape of the patient, together with simple measures of the tumor (size and location), and glandular density, taken from radiological exams, we will develop a simple 3D model of the breast. Naturally, there is a need to create a database containing radiological examinations, annotated by radiology professionals, and breast surface information, to develop the methods for 3D model creation.

 

The Breast Research Group reflects the essential multidisciplinary nature of the research in this area, with the application of engineering principles and techniques to the breast research field. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical science to help improve patient health care and the quality of life of individuals.

 

The Breast Research Group results from a joint collaboration between:
