The P-LOCUS software
Participants : Florence Forbes, Flor Vasseur.
Joint work with: Senan Doyle (start-up creator) and Michel Dojat.
The Locus software was extended to address the delineation of lesions in pathological brains. Its extension P-LOCUS (http://p-locus.com ) for lesion detection was realized by S. Doyle with financial support from GRAVIT (Grenoble Alpes Valorisation Innovation Technologies, http://www.gravit-innovation.org/ ) with the goal to create a Start-up. P-LOCUS software analyses, in few minutes, a 3D MR brain scan and performs fully automatic brain lesion delineation using a combined dataset of various 3D MRI sequences. Its originality comes from:
P-LOCUS software was presented at various conferences and used for the BRATS Challenge on tumor segmentation organized as a satellite challenge of the Miccai conference in Nagoya, Japan. A paper published in IEEE trans. on Medical Imaging reports the challenge results  . Results are also shown in  . The software has been registered at APP in 2013 and is now undergoing industrial development for the creation of a start-up (Pixyl) expected in January 2015.
