Description of the topic:

The objective of this PhD is to extend the PhD thesis of Julian Krebs (reference below) to address the probabilistic registration of medical images of different modalities. In particular, we plan to address the difficult problem of registration of pre-intervention MR images of an organ with intra-intervention ultrasound images of the same organ, in order to better guide some interventions. The challenge associated with this objective is to jointly learn the spatial transformation and the intensity mapping between images within a variational autoencoder. One major application will be for image-guided prostate cancer therapy.
