ERC Proof of Concept Grant for the development and testing of AI software for lung cancer

The department of Precision Medicine has received a prestigious ERC Proof of Concept grant for the development and implementation of fully automated AI software for fast, accurate detection and volumetric segmentation of lung tumours and lung metastases on CT images. This tool can be used for radiology, radiotherapy and medical oncology applications.

Professor Philippe Lambin, Head of the department, is proud that this prestigious grant has been awarded to his department: “Especially since this is the third ERC and fourth European grant that our new department, which is less than one year old, has received this year. It is the result of a fruitful collaboration with the department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine”.
