PhD project: Medical PET Imaging

Project description

A Ph.D studentship is available in the field of medical physics. The student will play a key role in the simulation of a new concept in medical PET imaging which has the potential to significantly reduce the contribution of random noise and in-patient scattering. The project has recently won significant funding from InnovateUK. The implementation of the new imaging method will require the development of simulation programmes based on GEANT4 and the development of new, fast imaging algorithms which depend on the detailed geometry of the detection systems. The simulations and imaging algorithms will require multithreading and will be executed on large farms of high-throughput computers. Cloud based storage will be utilised to enable access to the very large datasets that will be produced, allowing access to the results for academic and industrial collaborators.
