Published

on

 

At the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) annual meeting 10-12 October, in Madrid, Spain, Canfield Scientific will showcase several new, innovative AI-driven dermatology solutions along with significant enhancements to their aesthetic solutions.

DEXI is a ground-breaking scoring system calculated to assist in the diagnosis of suspicious lesions. Using Dermoscopy EXplainable Intelligence, and using EXplainable AI algorithms, DEXI has been trained on more than 66,000 annotated dermoscopy images. And for physician education and training, DEXI is also part of Canfield’s AI Challenge, a system that tests a clinician’s diagnosis of suspicious lesions compared to the AI algorithms. Canfield welcomes dermatologists to booth C38 to take the AI Challenge.

Lesion Change Detection has been added to DermaGraphix IntelliStudio® (2D) and VECTRA® WB360 (3D) systems, using Canfield’s Markerless Tracking and AI algorithms. Canfield’s new Lesion Change Detection corresponds lesions for sequential body map images, lesions are segmented, measured and compared to reveal new and evolving lesions.

As the recognized global leader in hair loss measurement research, Canfield is also introducing HairMetrix™. HairMetrix is the first AI-driven, non-invasive hair consultation solution that provides immediate hair measurements of unclipped hair. This fully automated real-time analysis solution requires no hair clipping and allows for appropriate treatment plans and objective outcome monitoring to be easily communicated to patients. With an easy-to-use and easy-to-learn interface, anyone in the office can prepare and manage the hair image capture process. With HairMetrix, clinics no longer need third party labs to evaluate images of unclipped hair, avoiding unwanted delays and fees.

Additional technology demonstrations on display include the VECTRA WB180 3D Body Mapping Solution, Confocal Integration with Caliber I.D./MAVIG, VECTRA H2 with 3D Facial Skin Analysis, the IntelliStage™ – 360o Turntable, the updated Luminis Dermatoscope, the new VISIA® Version 8.3 with improved RBX® Display and VISIA’s Advanced Aging and Advanced Injectables Simulation Modules.

According to Doug Canfield, Founder and President of Canfield Scientific, Inc., “Dermatologists around the world asked Canfield to bring the elegance, power, ease of use and reporting of our other market-leading systems to the specialties of dermsocopy and hair consultations. Now, with the latest versions of DEXI, Lesion Change Detection and HairMetrix, we can deliver an outstanding experience to more customers and enhance their consultative process.”

Canfield Scientific will be exhibiting at the 28th EADV Congress on 10-12 October 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

U.S. News & World Report Announces 2020 Best Global Universities Rankings

Published

on

 

U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in education rankings, today published the 2020 edition of the Best Global Universities rankings. In the most comprehensive assessment of research universities worldwide, the new edition evaluates 1,500 schools – up from 1,250 last year – on academic research and reputation.

The top 10 schools in the overall ranking are all found in either the U.S. or the United KingdomHarvard University remains at No. 1, followed by Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyStanford University and the University of California—Berkeley at No. 2, 3 and 4, respectively. The University of Oxford rounds out the top five.

The new edition evaluates schools in 81 countries – up from 75 last year. The U.S. has the most universities in the overall ranking with 249, followed by the following countries:

  • China: 188
  • U.K.: 86
  • Japan: 82
  • Germany: 66

“As the Best Global Universities rankings continue to expand in number of schools and subjects to fulfill the needs of prospective students, we remain consistent in our mission to evaluate schools around the world on their research,” said Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News. “A major emphasis on academic research is what sets this methodology apart from our other university rankings.”

New this year are six additional subject rankings, bringing the total to 28: oncology, surgery, cardiac and cardiovascular systems, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and civil engineering. In both the engineering and computer science rankings, four of the top 10 schools are based in China.

The following countries performed the best in each of these subjects, listed in order of most schools on each list:

Based on Web of Science data and InCites metrics provided by the Web of Science Group, the Best Global Universities methodology weighs factors that measure a university’s global and regional research reputation and academic research performance. For the overall rankings, this includes bibliometric indicators such as publications, citations and international collaboration. Each subject ranking has its own methodology based on academic research performance and reputation in that specific area.

“Many prospective students are looking to other countries for their education,” said Anita Narayan, managing editor of Education at U.S. News. “The Best Global Universities rankings give these students a starting point for their search. In addition to the rankings, students should also consider their fluency in the language of instruction, the fields of study that the school offers and the costs that come from studying in another country.”
