Title: Computer Aided Diagnosis system for prostatic biopsy guidance and follow-up fusing multi-modal imaging

Description:
The PhD project will be focused on developing a computer aided diagnosis (CAD) for prostate cancer to guide doctors during biopsy and follow-up exams. This work is the continuity of two PhDs based on information fusion of two medical imaging types (TRUS and MRI) in order to obtain a real-time and accurate localization-navigation system. It should help to guide the clinicians during prostatic biopsy exam. However, no information about potential cancer areas is given at this stage. Our contribution would be twofold: (i) improve the previous work of information fusion to obtain an accurate and real-time localization-navigation system during the biopsy and follow-up and (ii) incorporate information about potential cancer location using functional MRI in order to take samples from high risk areas.

Title: Valorisation of computerized technology in the health care sector [dissertation] [presentation]

Description: Since the last 30 to 20 years, the universities have been affected a new missions to their original teaching and research duties: an economic development mission. More precisely, it has been pointed out that the research carried out in laboratories attached to universities do not flow back to the society. The new universities mission is therefore corresponding to valorise or in other words transfer the knowledge developed in the laboratories back to society. Thus, some structures were created inside the university in order to fill this gap: Technology Transfer Office (TTO). These entities are in charge to promote and disseminate the worked developed inside the universities. The ultimate aim of this thesis will be to provide a decision making framework in order to elaborate some innovative  possible business models so as to valorise specific research carried out in universities.
