    Basic Information

Technology developed: mCAD Computer Aided Detection System using Mammograms for Breast Cancer Lesion Detection (TP19767754656)
Category: 1
Details of Inventor(s):
Inventor Institution/Organization/Company Department Designation
Byju N B CDAC THIRUVANANTHAPURAM HSTG PRINCIPAL ENGINEER
Technical Application Area: Healthcare
If 'Other', please specify:
Please give more details of new technical application area:
According to GLOBOCAN 2018, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women with nearly 2 million new cases in 2018. It is also the most common cause of cancer death among women death in 2018. Breast Cancer is curable if detected at an early stage. The use of Computer Aided Detection, CAD, software helps physicians interpreting medical images. mCAD, jointly developed by CDAC and RCC Thiruvananthapuram is an efficient and cost effective solution for Breast Cancer screening at Hospitals, Clinics or Early Cancer Detection Centers. Analyzes Xray images, mammograms, of breast using Machine Learning algorithms to detect calcifications, masses and architectural distortions indicative of malignancy. The system helps the radiologists in routine reporting of mammograms and in reducing false negatives

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
