DAILY OFFERING: Cloud-Based Quality Assurance for Cancer Treatment

Straight from the holy-crap-crowdfunding-can-help-solve-that files: Segasist has launched a campaign on MedStartr to try and bring quality assurance to cancer treatment.

The product is called Reconcilio and it aims to take the guesswork out of targeting cancer cells.  Before a cancer patient begins radiation therapy, there is a step that takes place called “contouring.”  This is where the clinician outlines both cancer tissue and surrounding healthy tissue so the machine knows which areas to target.  This being a task performed by humans, there is inevitably a bit of variation from doctor to doctor.  Segasist called this “inter-observer variability.”

Reconcilio is software that uses aggregate data from many doctors to create a “consensus contour,” or a representation of the average from all doctors on file, thus making the contouring more accurate.  Amazing stuff!

As of right now the project is well short of its stated $50,000 goal, but there is plenty of time left.
