"Quantitative imaging biomarkers in brain tumor: How we do it" - Dr Yoon Seong Choi, Yonsei University26/06 : 10h - 11h30
Dr Yoon Seong Choi from Yonsei University (Seoul, South Korea) has been invited by Vincent Dousset to give a TRAIL conference on June 26th, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. The conference will take place in the Open Space room of the Institute of Bio-Imaging (ground floor), Carreire Campus (zone nord).
Dr Choi is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Radiology at Yonsei University College of Medecine and will do a presentation with the following title:
"Quantitative imaging biomarkers in brain tumor : How we do it"
The trend of recent neuroradiology research, especially brain tumor imaging, is going toward quantitative and high-dimensional imaging biomarker, from qualitative imaging parameters such as visual assessment of radiological findings. Radiomics is a useful to extract high-dimensional quantitative information from medical images, thus extracting invisible information beyond visual assessment. Radiomics has been actively applied to oncology field. However, for research with these quantitative imaging biomarkers, labor-intensive work and meticulous numeric calculations are required, and several things should be considered including technical feasibility, reliability of results, and clinical practicality. In this talk, our experience in quantitative imaging biomarker of glioma will be shared, from conventional histogram analysis to current radiomics and deep learning research.
As with all upcoming TRAIL conferences, Ph.D students can validate one hour of training time by participating to the conference.
