Open PhD Position for MRI post-processing for Radiotherapy and online MRI guided treatment planning
The department of Radiation Oncology, Division of Medical Physics has an open PhD position from now on.
Aim of the PhD thesis is the development and establishment of a workflow for MR guided photon beam therapy as well as proton therapy.
This implies converting MR imaging information into synthetic CT for treatment planning purposes. In the frame of this PhD thesis such methods need to be extended toward cervical cancer, head as well as head-and-neck cancer patients. Finally, it is aimed to derive and validate methods to convert MR information into synthetic stopping power as the basis for MR guided proton. Next proton therapy workflow concepts for on-line and off-line adaptive radiotherapy shall be explored.
The PhD thesis will be conducted at the Department of Radiation Therapy at the MedUni Vienna in the framework of the third party founded “MAGIG-PRO” project under the supervision of Prof. Dietmar Georg. The work will be in cooperation with the University of Umea as well as the company Spectronics (CEO Carl Siversson). Prof. Tufve Nyholm will act as co-supervisor of this PhD thesis.
