Title of the research project
Personalized dosimetry in computed tomography imaging

The aim of this doctoral thesis is to develop a tool able to automatically provide organs of interest segmentation in computed tomography images using machine learning techniques.

This tool will then be used to calculate organ doses in order to establish personalized dosimetric records in medical imaging. Doses will be calculated using informations obtained from images, radiographic technique and GPU-based Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithm (GPUMCD). Automated pipelines will be implemented to process large amounts of data.

The proposed tool provides a better evaluation of population exposure to ionizing radiation caused by medical imaging procedures.


Featured project

The discovery of antimicrobial agents was one of the great triumphs of the 20th century. The sobering news is that antibiotic resistance was part of the process as well. If nothing is done by 2050, antimicrobial resistance  (AMR) will cost $100 trillion with 10M people/year expected to die ( Factors driving AMR extend beyond human healthcare with implications in veterinary medicine, agriculture and the environment (the One Health approach).
