New collaboration with dutch experts

In the first week of October 2021 we had the pleasure of having a visit from our new collaborators, Drs. Miangela M. Lacle and Lisa van der Schee in the Dutch T1 Colorectal Cancer Working Group . Together, we will explore the possibility of applying deep learning to better identify the patients with early-stage colon or rectum cancer who actually need a surgical resection, as well as identifying patients who could be spared from the morbidities and occasional mortalities associated with this surgery. This could have a tremendous impact on the success of the screening programs for colorectal cancer, which have recently started or will soon start in many Western countries.

We are looking forward to working with leading experts on early-stage colorectal cancer to improve the quality of life and survival of people with this disease.
