Francesco Ciompi of the Computational Pathology group has received a prestigious NWO-TTW VIDI grant of 800,000 euro for his project "Predicting Lung Cancer Immunotherapy Response. It's personal".
Nikolas Lessmann and Bram van Ginneken of DIAG received a TURBO grant of 80,000 euro for a collaboration project with Jelmer Wolterink and Christoph Brune from the faculty of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente and Esther Tanck and Dennis Janssen from the Department of Orthopedics of Radboudumc …
In this project we aim to develop and validate AI techniques for the detection of serous tubal intra-epithelial carcinoma (STIC), a non-invasive lesion in the distal Fallopian tube which is expected to be a precursor for ovarian cancer.
Friday, September 25, 2020, the first AI for Health course concluded with a meeting where all participants presented their AI projects' results. About 25 Radboudumc employees from different backgrounds followed the first course. The second edition has now started and will run until February 2021. The third edition is scheduled …
Maschenka Balkenhol succesfully defended her PhD thesis titled 'Tissue-based biomarker assessment for predicting prognosis of triple negative breast cancer: the additional value of artificial intelligence' on the 15th of September.
The impact of scanner variations and stain normalization on CNN performance for prostate cancer classification on WSIs was investigated by Zaneta Swiderska-Chadaj and their colleagues, and the work was published in Nature Scientific Reports.
Due to memory constraints on current hardware, most convolutional neural networks (CNN) are trained on sub-megapixel images. A novel method for end-to-end training of CNNs on multi-megapixel images was proposed by Hans Pinckaers and his colleagues. Their work appeared online in IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence.
RSNA News interviewed Keelin Murphy about her Radiology publication on CAD4COVID-XRay, an AI solution for finding COVID-19 with chest radiography.
Together with colleagues from the NCI and the AMC, DIAG's Jonas Teuwen and Nikita Moriakov won an international competition where MRI-scans can be accelerated using deep learning.
Pulmonary lobe segmentation in computed tomography scans is essential for regional assessment of pulmonary diseases. Our algorithm for automatic segmentation of pulmonary lobes on CT scans for patients with COPD or COVID-19 is now available on Grand Challenge.
