Séminaire technologique / Bruno PISCAGLIA, TELEMIS
23 janvier 2019 @ 14:00 - 15:30
About Bruno Piscaglia:
Bruno is one of the TELEMIS co-founders and previous research assistant at the University. He is graduated in Mathematics and is currently Chief Technology Officer at TELEMIS.
TELEMIS is a spin off company of the catholic university of Louvain (UCL) in Belgium, and more specially of Prof. Benoit Macq’s the Telecommunication and image processing lab. We started in 1999 as a medical image distribution system company, mainly focused on radiology, including and not limited to TELE-radiology, image archive, PACS solution. Years after years we improved the multimedia support to enable physicians to store video, PDF, ECG, Radiotherapy, Protontherapy, etc.
About Microscopy and TELEMIS:
2 years ago, we included the microscopy whole slide imaging world to our portfolio. Thanks to a partnership with another Belgium university, specialised in education and microscopy, we added the support to these mega images produced by whole slide scanners. This included the ability to support native formats from 3D Histech, Hamamatsu and others scanner suppliers, toward the Digital Patholgy world. This partnership also opened up the Artificial Intelligence doors into our system, being part of the TELEMIS Plugin concept : every user can indeed develop and attach new features and treatments to our system, shortening the distance between research and clinical routine.
About Research department and TELEMIS:
The combination of rich multimedia capabilities, openness of the database and plugin possibilities, gives us natural advantages for research units to store “any” information regarding their work – from Microsoft Offices documents, DICOM documents, whole slide images up to proprietary formats. We are currently installing our system in the Institute fur Patholgie Research centre in Bern/Switzerland, where we added the Tissue Micro Array support (including the de-arrayisation process). The concept is to allow the research facilities to store ALL information into one very flexible database (including unlimited number of columns inside the database for PDL1 info, scoring system, etc.). The combination of multi-modality and unlimited research capability is a key element for big data oriented approach. The objectives of the presentation, This scientific meeting aims to explain what a modern and flexible medical database can do, the needs it can answer for both clinical and research communities.
