Period of the Fellowship


Project title

Computer-aided diagnosis support systems and their potential for improving access to appropriate health care in low-resource settings

Short biography

Baptiste Vasey studied medicine at the University of Zurich and the Université Libre de Bruxelles. He gained clinical experience in various major centers, including the St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, the Geneva University Hospital and the London’s Air Ambulance. As part of his training, he spent two months at a remote hospital in the Peruvian Andes. During this time, he realized the potential of computer-aided diagnosis support systems to compensate for the lack of conventional diagnostic tests and for the low density of specialty-trained physicians. As a Mercator Fellow, he will focus on possible strategies to implement this new technology in low-resource settings.n Technologie im Umfeld begrenzter Ressourcen beschäftigen.
