We would like to invite you on Seminar of the Department III

Stanisław Wojtkiewicz, PhD

will speak about: Laser and Ultrasound Co-Analyser of thyroid nodules – making a device for thyroid cancer screening

The seminar will take place in the Hall Professor A. Morecki, Wednesday, february 19th at 11:00 am.

The Laser and Ultrasound Co-Analyser (LUCA) utilize data from three complimentary diagnostic techniques: multi-spectral time resolved spectroscopy (TRS) to measure concentrations of tissue constituents, diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) to assess perfusion and ultrasound (US) images for optical probes guidance and building the tissue model. Thyroid hemodynamic parameters recovery procedures benefit from using finite elements modelling and data processing based on highly massive parallel algorithms running on graphical processors with NVidia CUDA technology.

I will try to emphasize the process of making the LUCA device from the perspective of developer of algorithms/software who makes use of all components of the system. Making the LUCA device was and still is an interdisciplinary effort of academics, industry and clinicians.
