IS_RI

V sredo, 10.5.2017, ob 16ih vljudno vabimo na predavanje izr. prof. Ivana Štajduharja (Department of Computer Engineering, University of Rijeka – Faculty of Engineering) z naslovom Artificial Intelligence in Medicine. Predavanje bo potekalo v predavalnici F2 v prvem nadstropju stavbe za fiziko, Jadranska 19, Ljubljana.

Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

Would it be possible to supersede physicians with computers, to some extent, at least? The idea of computer-aided diagnosis in diagnosing and treating illnesses has been around from nineteen-eighties. It was then that scientists discovered that, by applying statistical algorithms on real-world patient data, using so-called machine learning, one can establish useful (almost-)out-of-the-box mathematical models that perform well at describing some problems. In the last decade, significant increases occurred worldwide in the level of informatics-readiness of clinical centres, in the availability of standardised technology for data exchange and storage, and in the abundance of quality medical radiology techniques. This, in turn, resulted in an explosion in the availability of voluminous data, enabling further advances in the field of computer-aided diagnosis and treatment. In this lecture, in addition to some fundamentals related to the field, several topics concerning medical image analysis will be discussed: learning predictive models for diagnosing knee injury, data preprocessing for reducing model complexity and transfer learning in medical radiology domain (“RadiologyNet”, a research project conducted in collaboration with the Clinical Hospital Centre Rijeka, Croatia).

Dan ščitnice in dobrodelna akcija “Pomagajmo ščitničnim bolnikom”

ThroidCancerV mesecu maju (26.5.) bo v prostorih Univerzitetnega kliničnega centra organizirano srečanje z naslovom “Dan ščitnice”. Ta dan bodo v predavalnici 1 UKCL potekala predavanja o hipertirozi, raku ščitnice in drugih boleznih. Preliminarni program si lahko ogledate na sledeči povezavi.

Že ta mesec pa poteka tudi dobrodelna akcija “Pomagajmo ščitničnim bolnikom” s katero se zbira sredstva za nakup sodobne ultrazvočne naprave za Ambulanto za bolezni ščitnice Klinike za nuklearno medicino UKC Ljubljana. Jutri (5.4.) bosta radio in TV Veseljak program namenila ščitničnim bolnikom v sodelovanju z znanimi gosti, predstavniki bolnikov in zdravniki specialisti za bolezni ščitnice. Na povezavi si lahko preberete več o dogodku ter kako lahko tudi vi prispevate k nakupu naprave.

Predavanje prof. Roberta Jeraja

V petek, 31.3.2017, bo imel profesor Robert Jeraj predavanje v sklopu ponedeljkovega fizikalnega kolokvija (tokrat izjemoma v petkovi izvedbi) z naslovom Implications of Tumor Heterogeneity for Precision Medicine. Predavanje bo ob 12:15 na Fakulteti za matematiko in fiziko, Jadranska 19, predavalnica F1. Pred predavanjem so vsi udeleženci vabljeni na čaj. Se vidimo!

Medical physics is intimately connected with medicine, and is progressing along a similar path. General trend of medicine, particularly oncology, towards personalized treatment gave rise to precision medicine, which addresses the highly complex nature of disease. However, there are severe obstacles to overcome. For example, cancers evolve in time to become harder targets to treat. Understanding treatment resistance, and its development, often connected with the highly heterogeneous nature of the disease, is another key obstacle. Use of multi-modality imaging techniques such as molecular imaging is one of the solutions that medical physics can offer. Examples from clinical trials utilizing advanced molecular imaging, highlighting intra-tumor and inter-tumor heterogeneity will be presented. New understanding of cancer treatment response dynamics will be outlined. Potential for improved patient treatment designs steaming from these novel insights will be discussed.

Poljudni predavanji iz matematike in medicinske fizike

Fakulteta za matematiko in fiziko vabi na poljudni predavanji iz matematike in fizike!

Matematično predavanje bo že tretje iz cikla poljudnih matematičnih predavanj “I <3 MAT". Na njem se bo prof. dr. Boris Lavrič posvetil lepoti in eksaktnosti geometrije. Na fizikalnem predavanju pa nas bo prof. dr. Robert Jeraj prepričal zakaj je Fizika + Medicina = Medicinska fizika. Predavanji bosta v četrtek 30. 3. 2017, ob 18.00 in 19.00 na Jadranski 21 v predavalnici 2.05.

Vljudno vabljeni!
