Functieomschrijving

We have shown in several publications that image features in medical images of head and neck cancer patients are related to treatment outcome and to the risk on complications after radiotherapy. In this project the added value of using deep learning techniques to identify prognostic and predictive image features will be explored. Deep learning algorithms will be developed and optimized for this purpose in cooperation with the project partner COSMONIO (https://cosmonio.com). Methods will be developed and validated based on clinical data from the UMCG and the German partner Pius Hospital Oldenburg. After validation those methods can be used to optimize the radiotherapy treatment of individual patients.
