Topic:  Images are more than nice pictures: Quantitative Imaging and Machine                  Learning

When: Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Time: 3:00 – 4:00PM


In contrast to the traditional practice of treating medical images primarily as pictures for visual interpretation, the development of quantitative imaging including radiomics has been pushing the boundary of extracting useful data from medical images. Such data have been shown to be useful in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment selection.  Moreover, the recent development of machine learning has been shown to be extremely useful in the field of medical imaging. In this talk, we will discuss the applications of quantitative imaging and machine learning in cancer research including bench, preclinical and clinical research.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1.   Identify different types of quantitative medical imaging techniques
2.   Identify applications of machine learning in medical imaging
3.   recognize potential imaging applications could benefiting from machine learning
