Fraunhofer MEVIS takes part in German NAKO study

By staff writers

June 16, 2014 -- The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS in Bremen, Germany, will serve as the collection center to preprocess medical image data in the country's National Cohort Study (NAKO).

NAKO is a long-term study of 200,000 patients, 30,000 of whom will receive MRI exams, to help scientists gain insight into the formation and development of diseases. Five MRI centers will acquire data and send it to a long-term archive at the University of Greifswald and the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, where the data will be inspected for incidental results by participating radiologists across Germany.

Software developed by MEVIS will enable radiologists from the reading center in Heidelberg and across Germany to gain access to the images without downloading the original data.
