Lecture upon election to the title of “research fellow”

On Monday, March 5 2018, Urban Simončič will give a lecture upon election to the title of “research fellow” titled Quantification of PET images with kinetic analysis – theory and applications. The lecture starts at 11:00 in the upper lecture room of Reactor Centre Podgorica. Cordially invited!
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a molecular imaging technique that plays an important role in modern medicine; especially in oncology, neurology and cardiology. Quantitative measures can be derived from PET images by normalizing uptake or kinetic analysis. The advantage of quantification with kinetic analysis compared to normalization of the uptake is in more abundant and more specific results. This seminar will present PET imaging technique, theoretical basis for kinetic analysis, practical implementation and some applications in oncology.


A call for student mobility grant (BSc, MSc, PhD, Postoc, professionals) has been published as part of the ENEN + project, with the aim of improving their knowledge, skills and career opportunities in the following nuclear fields:

  • Nuclear engineering and safety
  • Waste management and geological disposal
  • Radiation protection
  • Medical applications

The money goes directly to the selected students. The call will be open from March 1 2018 – September 2020, or until all the money is spent (1 M EUR).

The rules of the game have been already published online http://plus.enen.eu/call-for-mobility-grants/, for more detailed instructions, see http://plus.enen.eu/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ENEN-PLUS-Mobility-Manual-v1-Feb-6-2018.pdf.

Monday physics colloquium

On Monday, January 8, Matija Milanič will give a lecture titled Hyperspectral imaging and medicine. The lecture will be in the context of promotion to Assistant Professor. You are cordially invited to attend at 16:15 to Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Jadranska 19, lecture room F1. (There will also be tea before the lecture, so come a few minutes early 🙂 )

Matija Milanič

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is a non-contact and non-invasive optical technique which provides both spectral and spatial information in one measurement. The goal of HSI is to find objects, identify materials, or detect processes. As such it became a promising imaging modality for medical applications, especially in disease diagnosis and image-guided surgery.
An overview of the technique will be given, including a review of possible medical applications with focus on evaluation of bruises and detection of small-joint arthritis.
