This year the Queensland Branch will be hosting a full-day symposium with the theme of "Scripting in Medical Physics" on the 7th of October at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.
We are extremely happy that this year's event can be an in-person meeting with an exciting program covering aspects of what is an important subject for medical physics
Please note that there will be a hands-on tutorial in one of the MATLAB sessions.
Medical Imaging (scripting) with MATLAB: Syed Hussain
This medical imaging presentation consist of a presentation and a hands-on workshop and will introduce the graphical MATLAB desktop environment with a focus on (scripting for) medical imaging applications. We will use a workflow designed for medical practitioners where we import a representative set of patient data, perform an AI enhanced analysis of the image data, through to the generation of a custom report from a templatised workflow. Doing all of this with minimal scripting.
Participants that want to follow the demonstration on their own laptop are required to create a free MathWorks account prior to attending. On the day itself, you will need an internet connected laptop with a modern web browser. As part of this exercise, you will receive a free, no obligation, 30-day trial of the MathWorks platform, to explore other examples at later stage.
Syed Hussain is a training engineer with a focus on data analysis and predictive modelling using various AI techniques. Syed has a Masters in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Adelaide with specialisation in fluid modelling and numerical simulations.
Scripting to Certification in MATLAB: Dr Peter Brady
The MATLAB desktop environment can be more than just scripting, in fact a common progression that we see is where practitioners begin scripting to automate their daily, repetitive tasks but then gradually migrate to more complex, certification driven workflows. This presentation will cover an overview of this progression as well as some of the tools integrated within MATLAB to enable and facilitate best practices where certification, or simply consistency, is required.
Dr Peter Brady is a Senior Application Engineer with a background in numerical simulation and analysis as well as high-performance computing. Peter covers these areas of the MathWorks products as well as machine learning, deep learning, deployment and cloud. He has extensive experience in software development tools that drive modern workflows underpinning certification. Peter has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelors in Civil Engineering both from UTS and is a Chartered Practicing Engineer with Engineers Australia (CPEng NER).
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
