Prof. Dr Mauricio Reyes

Interpretability of Deep Learning Technologies for Neuroradiology: Insights, Challenges and Opportunities

15th February 2023, 12.30 GMT

Mauricio Reyes, conducted graduate studies as Electrical Engineering at the University of Santiago, Chile where he was awarded best electrical engineer thesis by the Chilean Institute of Engineers School. He conducted postgraduate studies to obtain a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences with specialization in Medical Image Analysis from INRIA, France (2006). He is an associate professor at the medical faculty of the University of Bern, and is currently leading the Medical Image Analysis group at the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research of the University of Bern. His research focuses on basic and applied machine learning technologies as well as biomedical engineering solutions to improve healthcare through medical image computation technologies. A particular strength of his research has been the emphasis on developing solutions that are designed to be integrated into the clinical workflow. Dr. Reyes has participated in several Swiss National Science Foundation projects, Commission of Technology and Innovation projects, EU-FP7 projects on computational oncology and computational anatomy, and several further projects supported by Swiss foundations. From 2006 he has secured over 10M EUR research funds. He has an H-index: 44, has authored over 250 articles, with over 10,000 citations. His entrepreneurial work has also led to the creation of one consolidated company and a second one in its first steps.

Dr Daniel Pinto dos Santos

Radiomics in Neuroradiology: Ready for clinical application?

22nd March 2023, 12.30 GMT

Daniel Pinto dos Santos completed his radiology training at the University Medical Center Mainz where he began working on structured reporting under the supervision of Prof. Peter Mildenberger. After a short research fellowship with Prof. Marti-Bonmati in Valencia and his board certification in 2015 he accepted a position as senior radiologist at the University Hospital of Cologne, where he continued working on structured reporting in radiology, imaging biomarkers and artificial intelligence. For his contributions to the field of structured reporting he received the Walter-Friedrich award of the German Radiological Society. Currently he is working as a senior radiologist at the University Hospital of Cologne as well as at the University Hospital of Frankfurt. He is the former chair of the IT working group of the German Radiological Society active member of the European Society for Medical Imaging Informatics and was recently appointed Deputy Editor for European Radiology, where he will be in charge of Imaging Informatics and AI-related submissions.

Hosted by: Prof Sotirios Bisdas, Lead for BSNR AI Special Interest Group

Sotirios Bisdas is Consultant Neuroradiologist, Clinical and MRI Lead in the Department of Neuroradiology at the National Hospital for Neurology and
Neurosurgery in London, Associate Professor in Neuroradiology at the University College London, and Professor of Radiology at the Eberhard Karls University in
Tübingen, Germany. He holds an honorary appointment as Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Messina, an M.Sc. degree in “Advanced
Oncology” and is Fellow of the European Society of Head and Neck Radiology. His clinical and research imaging expertise spans over advanced CT, intraoperative
MRI, ultra-high field MRI, advanced and functional MRI, and molecular MR-PET imaging in brain, head and neck, and spine diseases as well as AI applications in
neuroimaging. He has authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications and 10 book chapters. Currently, he is leading the neurooncology imaging research at the
National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Dr. Bisdas serves as member of the editorial board of several leading journals in Radiology and Neuroradiology, of
NICE expert panels for AI and is Secretary of the European Society of Medical Imaging and Informatics (EuSoMII), and member of the European Board of Neuroradiology (EBNR).
