Research DANAOS

Europe against skin cancer


The DANAOS study is the world’s largest multi-centre study for computer-based early recognition of skin cancer.

A total of 14 renowned dermatological clinics in Europe as well as the Deutsche Krebshilfe were involved in this unique EC project.

Within the scope of this study more than 21,000 images of skin lesions were taken over a period of three years. These images were scientifically evaluated under the direction of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum’s dermatological clinic, using analysis software based on neural networks.

The cooperation of dermatologists throughout Europe allowed the establishment of a collection of data that is unique in its scope and validity worldwide.
