Title: Multimodality imaging in oncology: improving its clinical implementation by medical physics research. 

Author: Montserrat Carles, PhD


Montserrat Carles Fariña has a Bachelor in Physics and a PhD within the field of Positron Emission Tomography. She is accredited as a Medical Physics Expert in Germany and she is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the La Fe Health Research Institute. She is leading four projects focused on the use of multimodality imaging in oncology and working in collaboration with the Oncology Department of the University Medical Center Freiburg, in Germany.


The aim of the Biomedical Imaging Research Group (GIBI230) from La Fe Health Research Institute is to promote and develop the use of imaging techniques and image biomarkers to optimize the diagnostic and therapeutic efficiency in clinical care research and in animal experimentation. One of the research lines focuses on the optimization of multimodality imaging - computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) - for its use in radiation oncology. The three main branches developed by the group in this context will be briefly summarized, for a non-clinical expert audience. The three branches are experimental phantoms measurements for PET/CT/MR image quality control, respiratory motion compensation in hybrid PET/CT and PET/MR systems and PET tumor segmentation and radiomic models for personalized treatment.
