|23rd - 25th November 2016: HELICoiD Final Workshop|
The final workshop of the HELICoiD project was held from 23-25th November 2016, as part of the Design of Circuits and Integrated Systems
Conference (DCIS 2016) in Granada, Spain. A special session on Hyperspectral Images for Brain Cancer Detection provided a platform for discussions of how the type of advanced imaging can be applied to neurosurgical applications. This provided an opportunity for the sharing of expertise across disciplinary boundaries, involving clinicians, engineers, scientists and mathematicians. HELICoiD partners presented papers on:
Intra-operative Hyperspectral Imaging for
Brain Tumour Detection and Delineation
A Novel Framework for Brain Cancer Detection
based on Spatial-Spectral Hyperspectral Image Classification
Spatio-Spectral Classification of
Hyperspectral Images based on Supervised and Unsupervised Methods for Brain
Integration of PCA and SVM on a Massively
Parallel Processor Array (MPPA) platform applied to hyperspectral images
Toward Efficient Embedded Implementations of
KNN-based Spatial-Spectral Classification In Hyperspectral Imaging for Cancer
|8th November 2016: Final Integration of the HELICoiD Demonstrator|
On 8th-9th November, HELICoiD team members from ULPGC and UPM met in Las Palmas for the final integration of the HELICoiD demonstrator. During these two days, the hyperspectral acquisition platform was combined with the real time processing platform for the first time. The processing platform accelerates critical parts of the algorithms used to analyse the hyperspectral images and provide information to clinicians. The successful completion of this work, which was the culmination of months of effort by the international team, means that the HELICoiD system can now operate in real-time during surgical procedures.
