International Experience: Juan David Hernández

“Four months in the United States. Working with motion planning experts” In 2013, I started evaluating different alternatives for planning collision-free paths for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). During such review, I decided to use the Open Motion Planning Library (OMPL), a C++ programming library that consists of many of state-of-the-art sampling-base planning algorithms, which is developed at Rice University, in Houston, Texas. For more than one year, I focused on…

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 solving in case of inconclusive findings from other modalities. Compared to mammography, which is the image modality commonly used in…
