Several aspects of quantification in molecular imaging and therapy to be developed may include: imaging reconstruction techniques; image analysis methods (automatic tumor segmentation, radiomics); pharmacokinetic analysis to understand the kinetic behavior of new radiotracers and/or radiolabeled drugs (e.g. in antibody based imaging); standardization of imaging procedures to optimize and validate existing and new tracers for clinical applicability; imaging for treatment planning (radionuclide and proton therapy); dosimetry of radionuclide therapy; etc.
The expert to be appointed has an international and proven track record in quantification, both for diagnostics as for therapy. Furthermore, the expert will be involved in training and teaching in his/her area. We aim at a level of expertise and CV sufficient to attribute to the same person a professorship in this field.
