Thank you Quebec City!

Part of the EngerLab attended two different scientific conferences in Quebec City, IC3Ddose and COMP annual scientific meeting. Members of our group presented their research, interacted with national and international experts in the field and had a lot of fun!  Thank you Ville de Quebec for your hospitality. We had a great time!

Congratulations to Fabian, Yujing, and Maude for their excellent oral presentations at the Curietherapies conference 2022 in Montreal, Canada!!

Our paper ” RapidBrachyDL: Rapid Radiation Dose Calculations in Brachytherapy via Deep Learning” was editor’s pick in the ESTRO news letter.

In this paper, we have replaced the time consuming Mone Carlo method  for use in brachytherapy dose calculations with a 3-dimensional deep convolutional neural network model to provide fast and accurate dose estimations. The work by Ximeng Mao during his master’s studies at the Enger Lab and in collaboration with Dr. Joelle Pineau allows for dose simulations that are as accurate as the gold-standard Monte-Carlo methods but take much less time. A brief discription of the RapidBrachyDL has become the editor’s pick in ESTRO news letter. More …
