A new ICT-based diagnosis procedure and tool set for early detection of cervix cancer aims at: ? Reducing cervix cancer diagnosis uncertainty through the introduction of advances in IT supported statistical analysis, namely for the correlation between the image data and the diagnosis. ? Improving the diagnosis by use of advances in state-of-the-art IT technology in the knowledge- based system (KBS) (for specialist know-how distribution), ? Implementing data fusion concepts, integrating in a single set of complementary image and data processing mechanisms specific analysis software that also includes the KBS engine and associated database, ? Deploying means of IT based image enhancing processes, reducing the needs of chemical based human tissue contrasting substances that not only introduce additional costs but contribute to intrusive reactions as they are based on the chemical reaction of the human tissue with the substance.
