September 2009 Technical Report to the LHNCBC Board of Scientific Counselors.


Since the last review by the Board in September 2006, the biomedical imaging work of the Communications Engineering Branch has had an impact on research in the field of uterine cervix cancer prevention and is positioned to impact clinical practice in that field, as well as the assessment of professional knowledge in the field of colposcopy. CEB-developed tools, and the close collaborative work among CEB engineers and computer scientists, and medical experts in the field of gynecologic oncology have played significant roles, and are currently being used in significant ways.
