Lung Tumor Detection and Characterization

Participants: Evgenios Kornaropoulos, Evangelia Zacharaki, Nikos Paragios

The use of Diffusion Weighted MR Imaging (DWI) is investigated as an alternative tool to radiologists for tumor detection, tumor characterization, distinguishing tumor tissue from non-tumor tissue, and monitoring and predicting treatment response. In collaboration with Hôpitaux Universitaires Henri-Mondor in Paris, France and Chang Gung Memorial Hospital – Linkou in Taipei, Taiwan we investigate the use of modelbased methods of 3D image registration, clustering and segmentation towards the development of a framework for automatic interpretation of images, and in particular extraction of meaningful biomarkers in aggressive lymphomas.
