Thira Lab

Thira Lab was a collaboration between Thirona, Delft Imaging Systems, and Radboud UMC. The mission of the lab was to perform world-class research to strengthen healthcare with innovative imaging solutions.

Medical imaging is a cornerstone of medicine for diagnosis of disease, treatment selection and quantification of treatment effects. The lab strived to automatically interpret medical images with the aid of deep learning. Research projects in the lab focused on recognition, detection, and quantification of objects and structures in images, with an initial focus on applications in the area of chest CT, radiography, and retinal imaging.

9 researchers – 6 PhD students and 3 postdocs – worked together as a lab unit in the Diagnostic Image Analysis Group. The Thira Lab director was one of the promotors. The director and scientific managers of Thira were involved in the daily supervision of the researchers.
