Post Doc Researcher Adam Szmul will be presenting his work at STEM for Britain 2022 on “Artificial Intelligence to Improve Proton Beam Therapy Delivery in Children with Cancer”. This work focuses on the development of AI-based methods for generating synthetic Computed Tomography (CT) images from lower quality Cone Beam CTs, which can be acquired just before the treatment delivery. Those synthetic CTs can be used to evaluate the accuracy of the proton therapy plans, and inform if treatment adaptation is needed due to anatomical change. This project was supervised by Dr Catarina Veiga and supported by a CRUK RadNet City of London Development fund. Adam’s abstract has been selected as a finalist in Biological and Biomedical Sciences category and invited for a presentation to the House of Commons on 7th of March.
