Emerging Applications of Spectral Computed Tomography

For the CRCHUM Conference on February 5th, we will welcome researcher Hugo Bouchard from the CRCHUM’s Imaging and Engineering Research Theme.

This talk will present the MARS spectral computed tomography (CT) research program that will consist of two modules: a basic module will focus on the optimization of the technology installed at the Université de Montréal’s MIL campus, and a translational module will be implemented in the clinical environment of the CHUM via the dual-energy spectral CT (DECT) installed in the Department of Radiation Oncology. These two complementary environments will be ideal for developing emerging spectral CT applications, both for radiation oncology and diagnostic radiology.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2021 – 12 P.M. TO 1 P.M.

Hugo Bouchard is a physics professor at the Université de Montréal, a regular researcher in the field of imaging at the CRCHUM, and a medical physicist in radiation oncology at the CHUM. His research interests include quantitative imaging by spectral CT, the dosimetry of ionizing radiation for emerging technologies, and the modelling of different physical and stochastic phenomena related to radiation therapy. He obtained his MSc in medical physics from McGill University in 2003 and, after a brief clinical career, he received his Ph.D. in physics from the Université de Montréal in 2010. He also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Physical Laboratory UK in 2015.
