Clinical and Biological Validation
If the objective of many of the research activities of the project is the discovery of original methods and algorithms with a demonstration of feasibility on a limited number of representative examples (i.e. proofs of concept) and publications in high quality scientific journals, we believe that it is important that a reasonable number of studies include a much more significant validation effort. As the BioMedical Image Analysis discipline becomes more mature, this is a necessary condition to see new ideas transformed into clinical tools and/or industrial products. It is also often the occasion to get access to larger databases of images and signals which in turn participate to the stimulation of new ideas and concepts.
