Abstract:

In our research and training program HBCU Undergraduate Collaborative Summer Training, we address detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer in two technology and application aspects, a remote detection and diagnosis through Internet and wireless networks and b computer-aided detection and diagnosis. With remote detection and diagnosis, we will provide prostate cancer screenings to men in rural regions and developing countries. With computer-aided detection and diagnosis, we will develop techniques to reduce the costs of telepathology for prostate cancer detection and diagnosis, both in terms of transmission costs and online reading costs. Thus with remote and computer-aided prostate cancer detection and diagnosis, it will have the advantage of higher penetration of men for cancer screening.
