AI in Medical Physics
Lecture Series "Artificial Intelligence in Science and Society"/ Ringvorlesung "Künstliche Intelligenz in Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft"
29.06.2022 16:00 – 18:00
On Wednesday, June 29th, 2022, 29.06.2022 Dr. Chiara Gianoli (Chair of Experimental Physics and Medical Physics, LMU Munich) will present the lecture "AI in Medical Physics" a lecture of the lecture series "Artificial Intelligence in Science and Society."
The most remarkable developments in modern medicine have been related to the advances in medical imaging. An unprecedented number of digital images has been made available to the extent that several clinical data repositories have been also made “open access”. In this scenario, the interest in artificial intelligence in medical imaging, with particular reference to machine learning and deep learning, is growing enormously. In the near future, artificial intelligence is expected to change profoundly healthcare and the application of physics to healthcare, referred to as medical physics.
In this lecture, the role of imaging in medical physics, with particular reference to radiation oncology, will be presented. An introduction to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning in medical physics will be given to provide a common level of understanding. Fundamentals of model-based tomographic image reconstruction will be mentioned in function of the data-driven counterparts. Treatment planning, verification ad adaptation in radiotherapy will be explained. An overview of pertinent problems solved by means of artificial intelligence will be outlined.
Finally, exemplary current projects involving artificial intelligence at the Chair of Experimental Physics – Medical Physics in the Faculty for Physics of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München will be illustrated.
The lecture is a component of the new minor "AI as a major Minor" (AIM@LMU, https://www.kiml.ifi.lmu.de/studies-teaching/ringvorlesung), currently in the planning phase, and open to all LMU students.
