Research topics:

ImagX Research Group: iMagX is a joint project between UCL (Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium) and IBA, world leader in proton therapy. Our interdisciplinary R&D team of 20 engineers, computer scientists, physicists and PhDs, works at the intersection of the scientific, clinical and industrial worlds, in order to create innovative imaging solutions to improve cancer treatment in proton therapy and radiotherapy.

Respiratory motion model of lungs and tumor from skin surface as surrogate for radiotherapy: Respiratory induced motion of organs and tumors is a technical challenge in radiation therapy since it compromises treatment accuracy. Recently available optical surface scanners have opened the door of modeling and predicting internal motion from external skin surface motion.

Current projects:

  • InVivo Dose Guided Therapy - The project aims to shift from Image Guided Proton Therapy (IGPT) to Dose Guided Proton Therapy (DGPT) so as to allow the visualisation and quantification of the dose delivered to a patient through simulation (Monte Carlo and analytical) and various means of measurement (CBCT, prompt gamma, time-resolved dosimetry...).
