The therapeutic efficacy of medication and treatment strategies is based on the diagnosis and staging of liver diseases. According to recent researches, the Collagen Proportional Area (CPA) is a reliable metric to assess fibrosis in liver tissues. Several image processing techniques are used for the analysis of liver biopsy images, providing objective assessment for the severity of the disease.

As a consequence, some preventive maintenance is omitted for months, causing a reduction in the useful life of the medical equipment, an additional investment of resources by the hospital and, mainly, a greater risk to the patient or medical staff. In this work we propose the development of an RFID + Wi-Fi access control system for medical equipment in the different...
