What we do
This is a structured research program focused on the development of systems for the management of clinical images, assisted diagnosis of inflammatory skin diseases and skin cancer, and the prediction of responses in clinical practice. The program is conducted in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics - University of Milan. We currently have developed a first system for imaging analysis of inflammatory skin lesions and also a predictive model of clinical response to treatment with ultraviolet light in vitiligo.
Results of a study, coordinated by Dr. Simone Cazzaniga, have been published on Dermatology journal.
