Good health starts from In Utero-Life

by Vasilios Tanos, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, UNIC Medical School

Introduction by Prof Adonis Ioannides, Dean, UNIC Medical School


The uterus develops from embryogenesis to adulthood, influenced by genetic and epigenetic factors that impact its function and variability. Novel technologies such as the ElectroUteroGram (EUG) provide insights into uterine contractility and menstrual cycle phases, aiding in the early detection of gynecological conditions, including endometriosis and cancer, using advanced methods like Computer Assisted Tissue Image Analysis (CAETIA).

Research in embryo implantation employs hysteroembryoscopic methods to study early miscarriages and explore gene therapy for thalassemia embryos. A multinational study using trans-vaginal endoscopy is in progress for ovarian cancer patients, aiming to reduce unnecessary surgeries and investigate chemoprevention strategies.

The development of Human-Centric Artificial Intelligence (HCAI) and Gynaecological Artificial Intelligence Diagnostics (GAID) systems are underway to enhance medical decision-making and improve patient care in Gynecology.
