What is D'z IMAGE?


Image-based diagnostics innovations through medical-engineering collaboration
 


Based on its R&D concept of "reaching reality through imaging technology," Casio has formed medical-engineering collaboration that leverage its long history of ground-breaking image processing technology to generate innovations in image-based diagnostics.

Our goal is to make meaningful contributions to medicine and to society more broadly by developing solutions that will not only provide patients with more accurate and effective examinations, but also help physicians in clinical settings to work more effectively and make earlier diagnoses.

Partnership


By applying Casio’s original core digital image conversion technology to dermoscopy and establishing structural enhancement conversion and blood vessel enhancement conversion technologies based on the extensive case data provided by Tokyo Women's Medical University coupled with the knowledge of our two consulting doctors, we have succeeded in creating new dermoscopy images. In images of structures such as melanocytic lesions, this reveals vessel distribution patterns and lesion structures that are difficult to identify in normal dermoscopy and allows them to be observed. This makes it much easier to interpret dermoscopy findings than was previously the case. By comparing and contrasting original and converted dermoscopy images, the colors and forms in lesions can readily be observed and their features identified.

To learn about dermoscopic examination, it is essential to refer to large amounts of high-quality case data. D'z IMAGE provides access to dermoscopy imagery stored at Chiba University Hospital and Shinshu University Hospital, and publishes them as case data with their associated findings and other data. As new case data is added in the future, the services will be further improved so that this case data can prove useful in various different forms for learning, promoting the even more widespread use and progress of dermoscopy.
