Deep Learning Object Detection

Chronic wounds pose an ongoing health concern globally, largely due to the prevalence of conditions such as diabetes and leprosy's disease. The standard method of monitoring these wounds involves visual inspection by healthcare professionals, a practice that could present challenges for patients in remote areas with inadequate transportation and healthcare infrastructure. This has led to the development of algorithms designed for the analysis and follow-up of wound images, which perform image-processing tasks such as classification, detection, and segmentation.


Nasal Cytology, or Rhinology, is the subfield of otolaryngology, focused on the microscope observation of samples of the nasal mucosa, aimed to recognize cells of different types, to spot and diagnose ongoing pathologies. Such methodology can claim good accuracy in diagnosing rhinitis and infections, being very cheap and accessible without any instrument more complex than a microscope, even optical ones.
