Role in Metastra

FrontEndART has expertise in process automation, developing and running web-based software and data-driven solutions, quality assurance and software testing. Our QA and testing expertise covers the data-driven domain too.

FrontEndART will mainly be working on a validated data-driven model predicting the risk of fracture of metastatic vertebrae (METASTRA-AI). As part of the METASTRA-AI module FronEndArt will develop an explainable data-driven model for the automated assessment of the clinical SINS, and will contribute to developing dedicated automated processing of medical images and the Decision Support System on top of these models. FrontEndART will also play a main role in QA, including the verification and validation of the input data, the data collection and processing process, the preprocessing steps and pipeline, the training, the resulting data-driven models, and the final Decision Support System.
