Join the MICCAI 2020 CADA challenge!

This year’s MICCAI Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention in Peru will feature Grand Challenges in biomedical image analysis. In Partnership with Charité, Fraunhofer MEVIS and Helios, BIFOLD supports the CADA challenge on the automated and semi-automated analysis of image data of cerebral aneurysms.

Cerebral aneurysms are local dilations of arterial blood vessels caused by a weakness of the vessel wall. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) caused by the rupture of a cerebral aneurysm is a life-threatening condition associated with high mortality and morbidity. The mortality rate is above 40%, and even in case of survival cognitive impairment can affect patients for a long time.

It is therefore highly desirable to detect aneurysms early and decide about the appropriate rupture prevention strategy. Diagnosis and treatment planning is based on angiographic imaging using MRI, CT, or X-ray rotation angiography.

Major goals in image analysis are the detection and risk assessment of aneurysms. The challenge therefore consist of three separate tasks (detection, segmentation and rupture risk estimation).
