A Non-Invasive Expert System for Diagnosis of Intraocular Tumors / NICDIT

Project code: E!4297
ES programme: Eurostars

Project flyer

The objective of the project

Development of non-invasive system for intraocular tumor diagnosis, its tissue characterization and parameterization which will consist of the innovative device-attachment, conventional non-invasive ultrasonic diagnostic equipment, innovative digital ophthalmoscope and sophisticated software.


The conventional ultrasonic diagnostic equipment performs visualization only of the envelope of the received ultrasonic signal. There is no possibility for user to apply more sophisticated signal processing techniques, for example filtering in time frequency domain.


To develop the device-attachment to the conventional ultrasonic diagnostic equipment in order to pick-up the raw ultrasonic signal, which is reflected from the tissue of the human eye. Further, processing in time-frequency domain will be performed in order to extract more information about tissue anomalies, like cancers..

Ultrasound institute

Has designed and developed the special hardware for ultrasonic signals capture. Design and development of the special hardware is oriented for acquisition, processing and storage of radiofrequency (RF) ultrasonic signals.
