Our aim is to develop data acquisition protocols that generate fully quantitative reconstructed images. Radiomics, the extraction of extensive quantitative features from images, has generated interest promising improved assessment of disease and prediction of outcome. Moreover, quantitative images allow for the personalized estimation of radiation doses delivered to tumors and target organs in molecular radiotherapies.
We have closely worked with our industry partners to develop new hardware and respiratory gating methods that can provide better image quantification for both PET and SPECT.
We are also developing automated segmentation methods using artificial intelligence algorithms that will allow us to more efficiently collect information from images.
