Best Poster Award for Jonas Degrave at Benelearn conference

Jonas Degrave won a Best Poster Award at the Benelearn conference with a poster titled "Using Deep Learning to Estimate Systolic and Diastolic volumes from MRI-images".

Abstract: In this paper, we focus on the problem of automatically annotating the volumes of the left ventricle in the heart, based on DICOM MRI-images. This solution came second in an international data mining competition on Kaggle. We show that it is possible to achieve near-human performance using a deep learning approach, when using model architectures designed for this task.

Molecubes becoming a worldwide player in preclinical imaging

Molecubes, a spin-off from Ghent University-iMinds led by Prof. Dr. Roel Van Holen, has raised 1.9M euro in seed capital through Qbic Arkiv Fund and a syndicate of four investors. The investment will allow Molecubes to launch the world’s smallest desktop PET, SPECT and CT scanner family for the three dimensional (3D) imaging of animals. As such, Molecubes is determined to become a worldwide player in preclinical imaging.
