Groundbreaking research cooperation between Medi-Globe Group and the IHU in Strasbourg
The Medi-Globe Group has entered into a groundbreaking research cooperation with the French Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire (IHU) in Strasbourg. The goal of the collaboration is the world's first artificial intelligent (AI) software for detecting diseases of the pancreas in endoscopic ultrasound examinations.
As industrial partner of the IHU, the Medi-Globe Group is thus further expanding its role as an innovation leader in minimally invasive diagnostics and therapies.
Diseases of the pancreas can have serious consequences for patients and are difficult to diagnose for physicians. Early detection is crucial for the patient's chance of survival. Today in Europe more than 90 percent of patients with pancreatic cancer die.
"In the future, with the support of artificial intelligence, we will be able to make the experience of the world's leading gastroenterologists available to all physicians. Our successful cooperation with the IHU has the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases", says Marc Jablonowski, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer (CTIO) of the Medi-Globe Group.
