CRIC - Center for Recognition and Inspection of Cells

Our team is dedicated to research and development of software tools and organized cell image catalogues through automated cell morphometry and recognition using machine learning. Recent work show advancements on cervical cell analysis of images from SUS (Brazilian Universal Health System). Together, we have built analytical and data-driven models using datasets provided by the Federal University of Ouro Preto. Our cell database contains digital pictures from conventional Pap smears digitized and classified by UFOP-AMBAR.
