[02.02.2015] PhD in Tomographic image reconstruction in ETHZ
ETH Zurich, Institute for Particle Physics, PET group
For the SAFIR project we are looking for a highly motivated PhD student implementing and testing 4D tomographic image reconstruction algorithms. The position will be open until filled. The SAFIR (Small Animal Fast PET insert for MRI) project is developing a PET detector insert for a commercial Bruker 70/30 pre-clinical MR system for dynamic and truly simultaneous PET/MR imaging. The goal is reaching a temporal resolution of ~5s or better, for tracking variations in tracer concentration. More info can be found here.

[13.01.2015] PhD Studentship in correction of whole body PET data for motion induced confounds using coacquired motion fields
Following the improvement of spatial resolution of clinical positron emission tomography (PET) to 3 mm the main limiting factor hampering its further advance is subject motion but developing motion correction techniques for different types of motion is challenging. Possible solutions might be offered by combining PET and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The use of MRI can provide independent estimation of the subject motion to correct PET data. In this research project, the student will combine PET and MRI to achieve motion correction, which would be feasible to translate into clinical practice. The successful candidate will join a collaborative effort between the Medical Physics group at the University of Leeds and Imanova Ltd. a leading imaging centre. The supervisory team consists of: Dr Harry Tsoumpas, Professor David Buckley (Leeds) and Dr Will Hallett and Professor Roger Gunn (Imanova). More info can be found here
