Evaluation of spectral photon-counting detectors for improvements in 2D (panoramic) dental imaging applications

This project will explore the use of latest hybrid-pixel photon-counting detectors for improving the image quality in 2D (panoramic) dental imaging applications. More specifically, the project aims at developing advanced dual-energy/ spectral artefact reduction algorithms and their experimental demonstration of their applicability in preclinical experiments. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with an industrial collaboration partner in the Munich area.

Character of thesis work: experimental physics (50%) & image processing (50%)

Pre-clinical evaluation of spectral photon-counting detectors for chest X-ray cancer and tuberculosis screening

This project will explore the use of latest hybrid-pixel photon-counting detectors for improving the diagnostic accuracy of chest X-ray examinations. More specifically, this work will use dedicated phantoms for assessing the potential clinical benefit of photon-counting-based material decomposition algorithms for better lung cancer and tuberculosis detection. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with the Department of Radiology at the TUM Klinikum Rechts der Isar.
