IPEM conferences

Our NCITA Repository Unit manager, Dr Simon Doran recently gave an excellent presentation on ‘Real-world radiomics’ at the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) online meeting ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) in MRI’ on 18 Nov 2020.

The IPEM meeting discussed the current status of AI techniques applied to MR data and images and explored the developments that are likely to become clinically available in the near future.  The meeting also discussed the infrastructure and expertise required to investigate and deploy AI tools in MRI into the clinical environment.

Dr Simon Doran manages the UK-wide Repository Unit of CRUK’s National Cancer Imaging Translational Accelerator (NCITA) and, locally, he works on the development of the ICR’s Research PACS platform for archiving and visualising image data. Both of these efforts are centred around the XNAT image archive platform, which is rapidly gaining traction as a leading open-source solution for academic imaging data management. The philosophy behind these developments is described in Doran et al. Radiographics 32, 2135–2150 (2012). Ongoing work in the group is customising the XNAT to meet the needs of the cancer imaging community, with a particular focus on the areas of online visualisation of image data, radiology-radiotherapy integration, clinical trials, multimodality imaging and preclinical imaging.
