Artificial Intelligence Group
Milosh is an undergraduate student in the Computer Science Faculty of University of Montreal (UdeM). He has one year left before completing his B.Sc. degree. When he graduates, he would like to continue his studies and specialize in artificial intelligence, a field he is highly passionate about. Milosh joined Dr. Enger’s lab in May 2021 and has since been part of the team. He is currently working on deep learning-based medical image analysis for brachytherapy patients. Outside of research and studies, Milosh loves playing water polo competitively and is a huge fan of sports in general.
Deep learning-based brachytherapy catheter reconstruction for breast cancer patients
Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy where a sealed radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. There are different types of brachytherapy, my project involves interstitial brachytherapy for treatment of breast cancer. The treatment starts by a radiation oncologist inserting many catheters (needles) inside the breast of the patient aiming to place them inside and around the tumor. Once this is done, a CT scan of the area is acquired followed by a medical physicist manually reconstructing the catheters in 3D. This means that the process is slow and prone to errors. The goal of my project is to automate this whole process using a deep learning algorithm.
