Translating academic code to the clinic Event as iCalendar


05 March 2018

3 - 4pm

Venue: Ground floor seminar room G10

Location: 70 Symonds St, Auckland Central

A seminar by Dr Tom Doel, Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, University College London.


My research focusses on developing image analysis software to support clinical trials into image guided surgery. As part of a new surgical sciences centre at UCL, I help to develop the complete software pipeline, from novel algorithm creation such as interactive segmentation, through to clinical translation such as surgical guidance with augmented reality. Our research crosses multiple surgical areas including fetal, liver and epilepsy. As part of my role I help researchers understand user experience (UX) and adopt good software development practices.

In this talk I will share some of my experiences developing software for academic and clinical use, focussing on two areas of my research: lung, where my Pulmonary Toolkit software helps imaging projects at UCL, Oxford and Auckland; and placenta, where we have developed open-source segmentation tools, and are working on high-resolution analysis methods for micro CT data.
