Within the ARTORG as part of the Medical Imaging Analysis group, I am involved in a project on automatic segmentation of brain structures for Radiation Oncology. Segmentation of brainstructures is currently a manual task performed by physicians which takes a lot of time and effort and subsequently will result in inconsistencies among pyhsicians and institutions. Ideally this task is fully automated. However, it is important this happens correctly and precize because the patients health is directly depended on these segmentations. In a collaboration with Varian Medical Systems and the Inselspital Bern, we are working on a deep learning based automatic segmentation method for brain lesions and organs at risk. My main tasks within this project is to introduce validation metrics and a quality assurance method that will improve the safe and secure implementation of autosegmentation in clinical practice.
