Hélène Feuillatre

University of Rennes 1 - LTSI

Hélène Feuillâtre obtained a Master’s degree in Computer Science from an engineering school (UTBM – Belfort-Montbéliard University of Technology) and a PhD at the University of Rennes 1. She began to work on the EurValve project in June 2016.

Hélène’s main role in EurValve is to develop the Case-Based Reasoning module. In this module, the past experience of physicians is used to solve similar problems.

Thanks to similarity measures, the team can retrieve a set of previous cases similar to the current candidate patient from a database. The information provided by these retrieved cases aims to help the practitioner to take the most suitable decision about current case. This relevant information is displayed in a graphical user interface.

Currently, they are developing the Case-Based Reasoning module to plan the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (vascular access and prosthesis choice).

At the moment, the beta version of Case-Based Reasoning module has been integrated into the current version of the Decision Support System. The design of software architecture and graphical user interface has been consolidated. The team are currently working to improve the similarity measure used to retrieve the set of most similar patients.
