This session will cover computer aided diagnosis research which I have been involved with over the past 25 years, with a strong emphasis on work related to breast and prostate cancer. I will cover a range of more traditional image processing techniques to more recent deep and machine learning techniques, which have been used for segmentation and classification/staging purposes.
