Mirada Medical, MAASTRO clinic and SOHARD collaborate on machine learning and big data driven radiation therapy treatment planning.

Oxford, United Kingdom, 26th May 2016: Mirada Medical Ltd, UK, MAASTRO clinic, the Netherlands and SOHARD Software GmbH, Germany, have won a European Eurostars grant to develop the next generation of automatic contouring and semantic database driven treatment planning support software. The collaboration will see Mirada Medical combine its expertise on medical image analysis and registration with the clinical knowledge from MAASTRO clinic. SOHARD  will provide access to and further develop its semantic database technology, SeDI, that will be used to index large datasets of previously delivered radiation therapy plans. As part of the collaboration MAASTRO clinic will provide access to up to 2.5M images, plans and contour sets from previous radiation therapy plans.  Mirada will utilize its machine learning and image analysis technology to learn the patterns and relationships deep within the data to deliver beyond state-of-the-art automatic contouring and treatment planning support. “We are very excited with this opportunity to work on the next generation system with leading clinical partners and industrial partners,” said Dr. Timor Kadir, Mirada Medical CSTO. He continued, “We believe that machine learning applied to large datasets will deliver a step-change in performance.”
