VerSe'20 Program

What is new?

  • With VerSe'20, we aim to work with 300 CT scans (~100% increase over its previous iteration).
  • While retaining the richness of its predecessor, the data will now be multi-centre, covering multiple scanners from all four major manufacturers.
  • Additionally, challenging the learning algorithms, focus is given to include atypical anatomies such as transitional vertebrae and additional vertebrae such as L6 and T13.
  • With clinical-translation being the primary objective of data preparation, we believe the algorithms using this data would more robust and generalisable.
