Fellowship focus: Combining research into head and neck cancer in India with expertise in medical imaging to investigate the stability of radiomics biomarkers.
This Fellowship will bring together Dr Thomas’s research into imaging of head and neck cancer (HNC) in India with expertise within Professor Evans’ group in CVSSP working in the field of radiomics (a quantitative approach to medical imaging) with AI and Big Data applications.
During her visit, Dr Thomas will investigate the stability of radiomics biomarkers to variations in image scanning and explore how the two groups can analyse the effects of differences in the tumour characteristics seen in India and the UK. She will also meet and establish links with the National Physical Laboratory’s Metrology for Medical Physics and Data Sciences groups and Royal Surrey Hospital’s Medical Physics and Nuclear Medicine Departments. Hannah’s collaboration with CVSSP is closely allied to Surrey’s newly-established AI Institute.
