Dr. Panagiotis Papadimitroulas, PhD


This seminar aims to present advanced computational methodologies for oncology applications. The seminar is supported by the INFORM “Interpretability of Deep Neural Networks for Radiomics” project and provides an overview of state-of-the-art medical imaging tools in the field PET imaging. Invited speakers from University of Warsaw and LaTIM (INSERM) alongside with BIOEMTECH experts will cover the following topics:

General concepts of PET/CT in oncology – Radiomics extractiong and image processing techniques – Deep Learning in radiomics – Monte Carlo simulations and anthropomorphic models for medical imaging – Practical demonstration of GATE MC simulations – Machine Learning and Interpretability in Biology and Medicine – Deep Learning for medical imaging.

INFORM consortium investigates explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) with a dual aim of building high performance DNN-based classifiers and developing novel interpretability techniques for radiomics.
