Vital Hour Appeal - Research

A Vital Hour Appeal - An Hour of Research

10th Oct 2016

One of the vital pieces of research currently being funded by Beatson Cancer Charity is a potentially ground-breaking study by University of Strathclyde PhD student Trushali:

“Once it’s identified by the MRI, a tumour is then hand-drawn for radiotherapy planning. This is done by eye and it’s very time-consuming. My work involves developing a series of algorithms that will automate the process of drawing the outline of the tumour. The aim is to remove any manual bias and make the whole process much faster, speeding up the treatment as a whole. My research could end up increasing the speed and accuracy of potentially lifesaving radiotherapy at The Beatson.”
