Intracranial Aneurysm Database
At a glance
The vision is to become the world-wide reference of
morphological analysis of pathologies and provide access to a
comprehensive collection of clinical cases. First, we will
concentrate on intracranial aneurysms, as we have access to a
collection of cases from the EU-project @neurIST. Each case will
contain the virtual replica of the IA, the automatically detected
shape features (e.g. Zernike invariants), the location/environment
of the IA, and personal information about the patient. With the
increasing number of cases the database will serve as a valuable
pool to classify the pathologies and to detect risk patterns. Also,
the physician can compare cases with similar character to plan the
treatment. This will reduce the risk to the patient and
significantly cut health care costs.
The project is partially funded by the EU project VPH share as a use case. Partners are the Klinik Hirslanden, Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, and Swiss Neuro Foundation.
