Running Projects

X-Ray Imaging Using a Patient Model

This project focuses on estimate a patient model and model based X-ray imaging application. The current research focus is on anatomical patient modelling and model based skin and scatter estimation.

Quantitative DECT with prior atlas knowledge

This project aims at decomposing the materials with anatomy knowledge automatically. An atlas provides the prior knowledge - the anatomic structures. The anatomy knowledge allows then automatic decomposition and classification of the different materials.

Quantification and Respiratory Motion Management for SPECT Imaging

Population-based metrics for diagnosis and patient stratification are important aids for nuclear medicine physicians when dealing with various cardiological, neurological, and oncological indications. A necessary input to such approaches based on SPECT is a standardized, artifact-free dataset. The goals of this project include improvement of standardization through quantitative imaging and reduction of respiratory motion artifacts through data-driven techniques.

Finished Projects

Time-of-Flight 4-D Foot Scan

3-D Reconstruction of the shape of human feet during motion.

Attenuation Correction for Hybrid Imaging Systems

Attenuation maps for correcting PET data needs to be derived from MR information in current PET/MR hybrid systems

Catheter Contact Force

Catheter contact force assessment and evaluation for cardiac ablation procedures.

Motion Compensation

Cardiac and respiratory motion compensation for atrial fibrillation ablation procedures.
