ACQI and UWA Medical Physics Group PhD student Jake Kendrick has just published the results of his study into automated detection and segmentation of prostate cancer metastases in PSMA PET images. Jake collaborated with a team of physicists, computer scientists and nuclear medicine specialists to use deep learning to replicate the image assessment of anContinue reading “ACQI all-star Jake publishes new study on AI applications in advanced prostate cancer”
ACQI Co-Director, Prof Martin Ebert, has just completed a three month Fulbright Future Scholar fellowship at the University of Wisconsin (Madison). Prof Ebert worked with the tumour tracking group led by Prof Robert Jeraj, which researchers the use of medical imaging for following the response of advanced cancers to therapy, aiding treatment decision making andContinue reading “ACQI Co-Director wraps up Fulbright visit to University of Wisconsin, Madison USA”
ACQI, via the University of Western Australia, and AIQ Solutions, have formally agreed to work on collaborative research to investigate the applications of the software solutions developed by AIQ. AIQ are a startup out of Madison Wisconsin, developing methods for tracking the response of cancers and other diseases with quantitative imaging.
As part of ACQI’s collaboration with AIQ Solutions, we are very please to welcome Mikaela Dell’Oro as a new Research Associate. Mikaela joins us from Adelaide where she undertook her PhD at the University of South Australia studying the potential long term effects of treatment of childhood cancers with radiotherapy. Mikaela brings unique skills inContinue reading “Mikaela joins the ACQI team to accelerate translational molecular imaging in oncology”
ACQI-affiliated PhD candidate Jake Kendrick has published a review of studies that have examined methods for predicting the outcomes of treatment for metastatic prostate cancer using imaging. This rapidly-evolving field is offering to facilitate patient-specific prognosis, the ability to intervene earlier as disease progresses and the opportunity to make patient care more cost effective.
Anita Parise has been on a mission to bring attention to the fact that the prognosis for patients with glioblastoma (GBM) has not improved in over 30 years. A common adult brain cancer, GBM is the topic of work being done by ACQI, including through collaboration on the national “FIG” trial of using FET PETContinue reading “Brain cancer advocate’s passionate mission”
The 2nd ACQI Symposium took place on November 15 2021 at the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research and online. This successful event brought together 95 attendees spanning clinicians, research scientists, advocacy groups and industry. In 2021, the symposium was complemented by a workshop on employing imaging analytics as part of clinical trials, with 45Continue reading “ACQI Symposium and Workshop 2021”
A symposium organised by the Australian Centre for Quantitative Imaging to showcase developments in medical imaging analytics research. The Australian Centre for Quantitative Imaging (ACQI) research symposium will showcase research conducted in WA in the field of medical imaging analytics, spanning the extraction of useful diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers to the use of artificial intelligenceContinue reading “The Australian Centre for Quantitative Imaging – Research Symposium”
An introductory workshop for prospective researchers to learn the fundamentals of medical imaging analytics This 2-hour seminar will provide an introduction to prospective researchers and/or clinicians to the field of quantitative imaging analytics. Important fundamental concepts such as organisation and acquisition of medical imaging data, necessary data preprocessing steps, and the basics of artificial intelligenceContinue reading “The Australian Centre for Quantitative Imaging – Introductory Workshop”
