PLANUCA is a collaboration between the DATEXIM company, the Cherbourg Public Hospital Center (CHPC), and the GREYC (University of Caen), funded by the EEC and Lower Normandy. We aim to develop a telepathology web application incorporating computer-aided diagnosis tools for health professionals in the field of cervical cancer screening. Our application, CytoProcessorTM, is designed for use by cytotechnologists, who furnish the sorted slides to the pathologists for diagnosis. Our results demonstrate a significant 1me advantage using CytoProcessorTM, and an increased sensitivity (99%) compared to conventional methods. This tool will empower resource-poor countries to conduct large scale screening programs, as well as improving the diagnostic accuracy of cervical cancer screening worldwide.
