Computer Science Faculty Candidate Campus Presentation

3:00pm - 4:00pm EST December 11

Location: SAC 109

Dr. Samuel Hawkins presents “Lung CT Radiomics: An Overview of Using Images as Data.”

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death. This talk focuses on making predictions from lung CT scans. Building predictive models based on medical images is the basis of the field of radiomics.  A model will be presented that predicts long-term survival versus short-term survival of forty adenocarcinoma patients. Another model will be presented that predicts whether suspicious nodules are benign or malignant. These predictive models will help to provide decision support to medical practitioners.

Free and open to the campus community.
