SNU GoGE-SDG Workshop - Topics In Medical Imaging (Jan 25, 2022)
Medical imaging keeps advancing in both hardware and software. This workshop introduces recent advances in medical imaging. Recently, photon-counting CT has become available in clinics as a FDA-approved machine to overcome the limitation of conventional CT systems and has opened a new door for potentials and possibilities in medical practices. This workshop has invited Prof. Katsuyuki Taguchi at Johns Hopkins University, a pioneer for photon-counting CT, to hear more about exciting recent advances in photon-counting CT. In this workshop, Dong Un Kang (PhD student) and Prof. Se Young at Seoul National University, will talk about some of the recent works on AI based pathology and self-supervision methods for deep learning based nuclear medicine and CT reconstructions. This workshop is not only for experts in this field, but also for students who do not have any domain knowledge! Click here or use the below Zoom information to join us for the workshop on 8-10AM (KST), Jan 25, 2022.
8:00 AM-8:30 AM (KST) Speaker: Se Young Chun (Associate Professor, Seoul National University)
Title: Model-Based Self-Supervision for SPECT and CT
8:30 AM-8:50 AM (KST) Speaker: Dong Un Kang (PhD Student, Seoul National University)
Title: AI in Pathology
9:00 AM-10:00 AM (KST) Invited Speaker: Katsuyuki (Ken) Taguchi (Professor, Johns Hopkins University)
Title: Spectral, photon counting x-ray computed tomography
Abstract: X-ray computed tomography (CT) is arguably the most important cross-sectional imaging modality used in most hospitals. Recently developed, spectral photon counting CT is revolution, not evolution, in the history of CT. In this seminar, I will outline my future perspectives as well as detector technologies, algorithms, and clinical applications. Please join interactive discussion.
Biography: Ken Taguchi is a Professor of Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University. He received a BS and MS in mechanical engineering science from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1989 and 1991, respectively, and a PhD in electronic engineering and information science from University of Tsukuba in 2002. He worked for Toshiba Medical Systems from 1991 to 2005 and was involved with development of several revolutionary CT systems such as multi-slice CT, cardiac CT, and four-dimensional CT. Dr. Taguchi joined the Johns Hopkins University in 2005 and has been working on motion-compensated cardiac imaging, photon counting spectral CT, and interventional x-ray imaging. He is interested in image reconstruction, modeling and compensation methods for physics and detectors, and is the creator of photon counting toolkit (PcTK) and an editor of a book, "Spectral, photon counting computed tomography: Technology and applications."
