Clinical Validation

If the objective of many of the research activities of the project is the discovery of original methods and algorithms with a proof of its feasibility in a limited number of representative cases (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, validation is necessary for the transformation of new ideas into clinical tools and/or industrial products. It also helps to get access to larger databases of images and signals, which in turn help to stimulate new ideas and concepts.
