Decoding binary files to extract medical imaging data
Often medical images are embedded in file formats that are tied to a specific software. Depending on the software this can make it very hard to bulk export images to an open format, such as PNG, for image analysis.
However, given a sufficient number of encoded binary input and decoded pixel output (images) it may be possible to develop a decoder able for these file formats which to automate the extraction process. Such a tool would have widespread applications and support a large number of projects, opening the door to many opportunities in healthcare and massively benefitting the medical AI community.
This project is particularly suited to people who enjoy cryptography and ethical hacking.
