Deep Learning Framework for Classification of Atherosclerosis using Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography

Dear All,

We would like to invite applications for positions of Graduate Research Assistant for project on "Machine Learning Development for Classification of Atherosclerosis using Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography". This is a collaborative medical imaging study between Faculty of Medicine and Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering.

 

SYNOPSIS:

Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of death and morbidity across the global. The different stages involved in atherosclerotic plaque formation shall be studied and characterized in strategizing new treatments for atherosclerosis. For stable plaque situation, the collagen accumulation forming a fibrous plaque can lead to progressive stenosis. On the other hand, in a vulnerable plaque, the build-up of lipids and necrotic core can bring to sudden thrombosis and heart attack. Machine learning is a new computing technique to improve the clinical management disease, considering and learning from various types of clinical data ranging from imaging data to clinical symptoms, biochemical data, risk factors ad prior treatments. The research aims to formulate, develop and evaluate a machine learning neural framework to combine and transform past and current clinical data into useful clinical analysis to provide new insights, discovery and knowledge. This framework should automate the process of identifying the types of plaque in medical images. The contribution of this study is to provide insights of the mechanisms that lead to a thrombotic situation, it is relevant to classify both the form and the composition of the plaque with the potential to identify the vulnerable plaques.

 

EMPLOYMENT STATUS: FULL-TIME
