The Development of diagnostic support: Project Precog
     
  Support system for the clinical decision based on multimedia indexation.  
     
  The principal objective of this European Research and Development project, titled PRECOG, is to equip the FOM of a Support System to the Clinical Decisión (SADC) which exploits the information base of Medical Records and of the image indexing, video and audio which the FOM collect in their daily activities.
 
In order to achieve this objective the project includes the development of the following areas:
 
To design and implement a SADC capable of interpreting and implementing Electronic Clinical Guidelines (GCE) which incorporates medical knowledge of the information base semi-automatically. It will guide the FOM experts in future cases based on said GCE and the statistical knowledge collected by the members of the FOM medical team.

To develop algorithms that extract pathological information relevant to the audiovisual material that FOM collects in their hospital care service. This subsystem will have a dual purpose: to feed the SADC and allow direct searches about the keyword based multimedia.
 
 
     
   
     
  The project, valued as 1,200,000 euros, has been financed by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, inside of the National Plan of Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011 and the Regional Development Fund FEDER.
