The focus of the Phd project will be:

1) to create a new and optimized patient trajectory in men with genital lesions, where digital image interpretation with the support of artificial intelligence is part of the toolbox.

We develop a decision support tool which, using digital images of genital lesions and their clinical course. The tool can be used by the healthcare professional to recognize rare changes, take tissue samples at the right time and place and refer the patient to the right treatment.

This part of the project aims to optimize the pre-referral interval and system interval.

The candidate is not expected to program or design the artificial intelligence, which will be done in close collaboration with a private stakeholder with experience in the field.
