Patents & Publications

We are passionate about research. We did a considerable amount of it during our academic careers and we continue to do it.
Here you can find the results of our care, combined with over 15 years’ experience in industry and medical imaging, focusing on the automatic diagnosis of breast cancer in digital mammography.
