24jan19:0020:00Webinar - Deep Learning driven Image Search and Speed up of Thorax CT Assessment

Event Details

In the talk Helmut Prosch and Georg Langs will discuss the role of deep learning and image based search in the context of lung CT diagnosis. Faced with complex diagnostic assessment of lung diseases such as lung fibrosis, the computational quantification of disease patterns, and the search for similar cases can help assessing individual cases. Quantitative profiles turn imaging data into signatures that can enter treatment decisions. Image based search enables the comparison   of CT images with known findings to help recognising tissue changes, and perform reliable differential diagnosis. The talk will illustrate the challenges of diagnosing fibrosing lung diseases, and the practical impact of machine learning in radiological practice.
