Sept. 16, 2022. Virtual clinical trials evaluating the impact of uptake time in 18F-FDG-PET/CT oncology imagingSpeaker: Paul Kinahan, Head of the Imaging Research Laboratory and Director of the WMC PET/CT Physics at the University of Washington
From individual cells to human populations: a multiscale computational approach to radiation dosimetry(August 19, 2022) Anuj Kapadia from Oak Ridge National Laboratory describes his work developing high-performance computing pipelines for multiscale radiation dosimetry.
- (July 15, 2022) Doris Fuertinger from Fresenius Medical Care shows how patient-level data can be used to create large cohorts of individual virtual representations of patients and improve on the external validity of Virtual Clinical Trials (VCT).
Usage of the XCAT Phantom to Investigate Respiratory Motion and Estimation of Attenuation Maps in Pediatric SPECT DMSA Studies(June 17, 2022) Justin Pijanowski and Clifford Lindsay from the UMass Chan Medical School discuss their efforts in addressing image degradation in pediatric DMSA SPECT images in two areas, specifically patient motion and attenuation estimation with the use of CT.
- (May 20, 2022) Ioannis Sechopoulos from Radboud University presents on methods used to transform CT into a functional imaging modality for which accurate human and image modeling are key.
- (April 22, 2022) Craig Abbey from the University of California, Santa Barbara describes a psychophysical methodology that has proven useful for understanding how human observers extract basic features related to task performance in noisy images.
