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.
