PICCOLO Project 7th Face-to-Face Meeting at JUMISC (NANBIOSIS)

The Piccolo consortium members met at JUMISC (Cácere) last on 21st-22nd January to hold the 7th face-to-face meeting.

Project partners had the chance to visit Nanbiosis U21 Experimental operating rooms led by Francisco M. Sánchez Margallo and participate in a training session with the prototype demo. A murine specimen was analysed ex-vivo with the probe and the clinicians had the opportunity to evaluate the features present in a neoplastic polyp.

The meeting agenda included a general overview of the project, the status update of OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), MPT (Multiphoton Tomography) and fluorescence technologies, deep learning algorithms preliminary results, the final steps to follow with the validation on animal and human samples and the exploitation and dissemination plan. All members agreed to focus on the preparation of dissemination material with the results of the project, such as a brochure or videos to approach the project to the scientific community.

A photonic endoscope to improve the colon cancer diagnosis

Last 18th and 19th January, the Jesús Usón Minimally Invasive Surgery Centre attended the kick of meeting of the European project “Multimodal highly-sensitive PhotonICs endoscope for improved in-vivo COLOn Cancer diagnosis and clinical decision support” (PICCOLO, the English abbreviation), held in Bilbao.

This project proposes a new compact, hybrid and multimodal photonics endoscope based on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Multi-Photon Tomography (MPT) combined with fluorescence technology.
Colorectal cancer represents around one tenth of all cancers worldwide. Early and accurate diagnosis and precise intervention can increase cure rate up to 90%.

The multidisciplinary team, composed by Tecnalia Foundation, the project coordinator, and other eight European partnerscoming from Italy, UK, Ireland, Germanyand Spain, joins to work together in this ambitious project, financed by the UE Horizon2020 Programme. PICCOLO is focused to develop an innovative endoscope that will provide gastroenterologists immediate and detailed in situ identification of colorectal neoplastic lesions and facilitate accurate and reliable diagnostics.

The consortium comprises the whole value chain including pre-clinical and clinical partners, technology providers, photonics SMEs and endoscopy market Leader Company.
