Surgery and Interventional Procedures

  • About the area
  • Groups

Polytrauma is the leading cause of death and morbidity associated between the first year of life and forty-four years. Our research aims to focus on each stage of treatment of these patients, from prehospital medicine, treatment to the Hospital and later the social study of the repercussions of severe trauma, as well as the possibilities of avoiding recurrence of trauma.

The polytraumatic patient is perhaps one of the clearest examples in the Medicine of the multidisciplinary treatment, the good operation of each one of the parts, causes that the results improve; That is why our group consists of: anesthesiologists, surgeons, pediatricians, intensivists, radiologists and psychiatrists.

Group A9G2 - Polytrauma and transfusion medicine

Accreditation level: Popup group

Polytrauma is the leading cause of death and associated morbidity between the first year of life and 44 years of age.

Our research aims to focus on each of the phases of the treatment of these patients, both from prehospital medicine, hospital treatment and subsequently the social study of the repercussions of a severe trauma, as well as the chances of avoiding recurrence of trauma.

The polytraumatic patient is perhaps one of the clearest examples in the Medicine of the multidisciplinary treatment, the good operation of each one of the parts, causes that the results improve; That is why our group consists of: anesthesiologists, surgeons, pediatricians, intensivists, radiologists and psychiatrists.

Lines of research

  • Diagnosis and treatment of polytrauma patients
  • Study of blood derivatives and fluids in the care of polytraumatized patients

Group A9G5 - GIAMed: Artificial Intelligence applied to Medical Imaging

Accreditation level: Pendent

The GIAMed group is created in order to provide the hospital with a research and advice unit on the application of artificial intelligence in medical imaging. Research is essential in order to keep the hospital at the forefront, especially when disruptive technology such as artificial intelligence is introduced.
The research topics of this group include all that research to support medical diagnosis through artificial intelligence algorithms, such as the development of reconstruction algorithms, image processing, visualization tools or innovative tissue segmentation.

GIAMed is made up of a multidisciplinary team (Engineers, Physicists and Healthcare Staff) and has a strong collaboration with other artificial intelligence research groups at Catalan universities (BCN-AIM, VICOROB). GIAMed aims to become a benchmark in the CSPT in research related to artificial intelligence.

Lines of research

  • Creation of algorithms for the processing of Medipix3 photon counting data, in the implementation of the chip in a prototype of a breast biopsy guided by Tomosynthesis. Such as digital corrections of chip misalignment or pixel interpolation in non-operational areas.
  • Development of a user interface for the segmentation of breast tissue using multiple techniques (tresholding, watershed or deeplearning) and its subsequent conversion into a printable format.
  • Development of the RAIM CLOUD solution and implementation in the Catalan healthcare system, a world reference in solutions for the shared history between hospitals.
  • Research in the early detection of lung cancer using the deeplearning algorithm developed by Eurecat for the detection of nodules in chest plates.
  • Research in the detection of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) through the deeplearning algorithm developed by VICOROB for chest plate analysis.
  • Research into the usefulness of artificial intelligence systems as a complement to conventional chest radiological reading in order to be able to report most studies. The research is carried out using the artificial intelligence solution INFERVISION.
  • Development of a tool for the sharing of medical history between European institutions.
  • Development of an artificial intelligence tool to support the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
