Remote and Computer-aided Detection and Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer Funded by the US Army Medical Research and Material Command, DoD
Drs. Yao, Hong Man and Yan Meng are investigating the remote detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer through Internet and wireless networks to provide prostate cancer screenings to men in rural and developing countries. They are taking advantage of the explosive development of telecommunications infrastructures and information processing technologies to develop techniques that reduce the costs of telepathology through computer-aided detection and diagnosis. By examining the roles of pathology, telepathology, medical imaging and the requirements of Internet and wireless systems in telepathology and teleconsultation, they hope to provide significant advances in the early detection of prostate cancer.
