EPU «AI Medical Physics & Radiation Oncology»


The 2nd edition of our cutting-edge master-class will take place at Gustave Roussy, Ecole des Sciences du Cancer from 8th to 10th of November 2021, with renowned speakers from the best French cancer centers (IGR, CLB, ICM), top notch engineering schools (University Paris-Saclay’s MINE ParisTech and Centrale Supelec) and the leading medical tech company of the field (Therapanacea).
Register and learn how to practice high precision radiotherapy by combining medical imaging, AI, physics and mathematics.

Enseignement Post-Universitaire

Gustave Roussy hosts this high level training on cutting edge AI applications for medical physicists, radiation oncologists, researchers, physicians, and students in medical physics/radiation oncology/radiology/nuclear medicine. And for the 1st time, lectures and practical sessions will be 100% in English, so that people from abroad can apply. Please note that the training will be held face to face at Ecole des Sciences du Cancer. Of course, all precautions will be undertaken regarding the COVID situation.

Objectives of the training
     - Introducing AI vocabulary and basic concepts
     - Identifyting putative applications of AI in medical physics (medical imaging and radiotherapy)
     - Understanding mathematical basis of main algorithms used in machine learning and deep learning
     - Enforcing these tools during practical sessions on computers .

Target audience 
Medical physicists, radiation oncologists, engineers, researchers, physicists, and students in medical physics/radiation oncology/radiology/nuclear medicine.

Required background
Basics of PYTHON (note that half a day of updates about it is planned during the training).

3 days from the 8th to the 10th of November 2021.
