    • Post-Doc : Replacing subjective diagnosis of prostate cancer with automatic malignancy grading.
      The overall aim of the Decision Support System for the Prognostication of Prostate Cancer is to develop a high-throughput prognostic system in order to identify and separate slow-growing prostate cancer from more aggressive types. We have developed a prototype prostate cancer grading system that is based on image analysis, a new tissue stain, mathematical morphology, statistics, and machine vision. We have built a training data set with 650 images of prostate cancer tissue, each with a dominant Gleason pattern. This data has been consensus graded by thirteen internationally prominent pathologists from seven countries.

    • Ph.D. : Tracking closed curves with non-linear stochastic filters.
      We introduce a non-linear stochastic filtering technique to track the state of a free curve from image data. In that purpose, we design a continuous-time dynamics that allows us to infer inter-frame deformations. The curve is defined by an implicit level-set representation and the stochastic dynamics is expressed on the level-set function.
      Directed by Etienne Mémin and Patrick Pérez in VISTA team (IRISA).
