The 29th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2016) will be held in Dublin (20.6.2016) and in Belfast (21.-23.6.2016). The symposium is the premier conference for computational medicine, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academics and industrial scientists, and it attracts a worldwide audience.

-        The symposium gathers 140 experts in both information sciences and medicine together from all around the world. Together with Myra Spiliopoulou, a German professor, we have managed the whole evaluation process with 150 submissions. Gamification seems to be the trend in medicine at the moment, tells PC Chair and Teaching researcher Jaakko Hollmén.

Algorithms in cancer treatment

Big data can be beneficial for the patients by utilizing predictive technologies and modelling, and thereby treating the patients as efficiently as possible. In a collaborative study of Baltic Institute of Advanced Technology Vytautas Magnus University, Aalto University, University of Helsinki, Rubedo Systems and Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences the lung tumour motion was accurately predicted to improve the precision of radiation.

-      The aim of the study was to implement radiation therapy in a way that causes less damage to the patient and also is less time-consuming, tells Postdoctoral researcher Indre Zliobaite from Aalto University.

Algorithm in this study was used as a procedure to calibrate the radiation device for a specific patient. The algorithm parameters take into account breathing and its tempo, talking and couching, and it uses two different models. Despite the challenges in irregular periodicity the solution works well to be prototyped and deployed in applications of radio therapy.
