LoVE group member Dr James M Brown (Associate Professor in Imaging/Vision) was recently awarded an EPSRC New Investigator Award focused on developing computer vision approaches for high-throughput skeletal phenotyping from x-rays.
The project, a collaboration with the Mary Lyon Centre at MRC Harwell, aims to alleviate the bottleneck of manual annotation of x-rays for a wide range of skeletal abnormalities. A multi-view, multi-task deep learning approach will be developed to process images collected by the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC).
A postdoctoral opportunity is currently open for the post, with a closing date of Wednesday 24 August 2022. Please click here to apply.
The 2019 BMVA Computer Vision Summer School (CVSS) will take place between 8 and 12 July 2019 at the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln. For more information http://cvss.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/
Single slice reconstruction of a proton CT image for a phantom head – reconstructed using our patented algorithms. The sequence shows various stages in the reconstruction
Parts of PRaVDA – research platform for Proton Therapy Instrumentation, especially Proton CT – has been installed at the iThemba LABS, South Africa.
Four proton trackers, two in front of a phantom (in time, a patient!) and two after, record the paths of individual protons. The “fish tank” on the right is to calibrate the energies of the protons in the beam (typically 125 – 250 MeV).
PRaVDA will form part of the “One Hundred Objects that Changed the World” at the year long exhibition at the The Institution of Engineering and Technology Savoy Place Headquarters
