PhD position in machine learning (deep learning for automatic organ contouring of medical images …

The DeepContour project takes place at the crossing of machine learning and cancer treatment with photon or proton therapy).To target the tumor and avoid organs at risk, radiation oncology heavily relies on medical images that must be annotated with the contours of these structures.This difficult task is still performed mainly manually by physicians.On the other hand, automatic recognition and delineation of organs in medical images is often turned into an image registration problem: a reference image, called atlas and manually segmented by an expert, is non-rigidly deformed to match the image to be segmented.Registration can however suffer from inaccuracies, especially when trying to match anatomies of different patients.DeepContour follows a different approach of the atlas, based on machine learning techniques.Reference images will be used to train classifiers (deep neural networks),…
