Project description

In this PhD project, we will build on modern techniques for assessment of image quality and optimization of imaging systems, and use them to guide the optimization of Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) systems, in particular for the case of adaptive SPECT. Our results should contribute to the development of more personalized and efficient medical imaging.
