Radboud umc – Postdoctoral researcher ‘deep learning in digital pathology’

Diagnostic pathology involves microscopic evaluation of human tissues. Increasingly, microscopic images are digitized to support the diagnostic workflow. This rapidly growing field of ‘digital pathology’ also yields ample opportunities for development of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) algorithms. State-of-the-art deep learning methods have recently been proven capable of supporting the diagnostic work of pathologists. We have now reached the point where such… Continue reading

UMC Utrecht – PhD candidate MR-Linac

Job description During external beam radiotherapy of prostate cancer, the target volumes can exhibit significant motion on various timescales. The MR-Linac system will allow tracking and countering of these motions with unprecedented precision, possibly sparing healthy tissue and delivering higher doses to the target volumes. You will be working on the development of fast intervention strategies using ‘on-line’ (real-time) treatment… Continue reading
