Automated Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Breast

Albert Gubern defends his PhD thesis “Automated Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Breast”

Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI) of the breast is employed for breast cancer screening in women with cumulative lifetime breast cancer risk of more than 20-25% (US and EU guideline). Other indications include, but are not limited to, preoperative staging, evaluation of women treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and problem…

Tali Hurtós defends her PhD thesis: “Forward-Looking Sonar Mosaicing for Underwater Environments”

Vehicle operations in underwater environments are frequently compromised by poor visibility conditions. The perception range of optical devices is heavily constrained in turbid waters, thus often complicating navigation and mapping tasks in environments such as harbors, bays, or rivers. A new generation of high-frequency forward-looking sonars that provide acoustic imagery…

Onur Ganiler defends his PhD thesis: “Automated detection of new Multiple Sclerosis lesions in longitudinal brain magnetic resonance imaging”

  This thesis deals with the detection of new multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions in longitudinal brain magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. This disease is characterized by the presence of lesions in the brain, predominantly in the white matter (WM) tissue of the brain. The detection and quantification of new lesions are…

MARC MASIAS defends his PhD thesis: “Automatic source detection in astronomical images”

This thesis is focused on the automatic detection of sources (objects) in astronomical images. These sources are something that suggests the presence of an astronomical object such as stars, galaxies, gas, dust or cosmic rays. The use of automatic algorithms to perform such a task becomes of great importance in…

Konstantin Korotkov defends his PhD thesis “Automatic change detection in multiple pigmented skin lesions”

Malignant melanoma is the rarest and deadliest of skin cancers causing three times more deaths than all other skin-related malignancies combined. Fortunately, in its early stages, it is completely curable, making a total body skin examination (TBSE) a fundamental procedure for many patients. During TBSE, dermatologists look for pigmented skin…

Ricard Campos defends his PhD thesis “Surface Reconstruction Methods for Seafloor Modelling”

Underwater maps are an important source of information for the scientific community, since mapping the seafloor is the starting point for underwater exploration. The advance of range scanning methodologies, both using acoustic and optical techniques, enables the mapping of the seabed to attain increasingly larger resolutions. However, all these techniques…

Angelos Mallios defends his PhD Thesis “Sonar Scan Matching for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping in Confined Underwater Environments”

This thesis presents the development of a localization and mapping algorithm for an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). It is based on probabilistic scan matching of raw sonar scans within a pose-based simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) framework.   To address the motion-induced distortions affecting the generation of full sector scans,…
