Biosketch | Professor Freudenberg studied human medicine, social anthropology and ethnology (MA), business administration (MBA) and business psychology (MSc) in Göttingen, Seattle, Lüneburg and Hamburg. After two years as a research assistant at the Institute for Ethnology at the University of Göttingen and a clinical year in Grevenbroich, he was trained as a specialist in nuclear medicine at the Essen University Hospital, where he then worked as a senior physician. In 2011 he was appointed professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In 2012 he obtained the additional designation "Medical Quality Management". Since 2004 he has been licensed for medical care and works in his own private practice in Grevenbroich, Dormagen and Neuss. His clinical focus is on radiosynoviorthesis (RSO) and Nuclear medicine imaging, including hybrid imaging (SPECT / CT, PET / CT)
Biosketch | | Prof.dr. Ronald Boellaard is appointed as full professor at the Amsterdam University Medical Centers and at the University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands. He has a background in biology (MSc) and physics (MSc) and a PhD in science. His research focuses on (pharmacokinetic) quantitative analysis of positron emission tomography (PET), PET image reconstruction and processing. He is member of several international societies and committees (e.g. QIBA technical FDG PET/CT and Amyloid committees, member of EANM NeuroImaging Committee, EORTC imaging workgroup, EARL steering board). He is the principal author for the Netherlands and the European guidelines for standardisation of quantitative FDG PET and PET/CT studies (EJNMMI 2010 & 2015). Specialties: quantitative analysis of positron emission tomography studies; image processing, radiomics and artificial intelligence, image reconstruction, pharmacokinetic analysis (brain, onco, cardio), PET standardization and QA.
Biosketch | Dr Willowson is a senior medical physicist in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at Royal North Shore Hospital, and a senior lecturer at The Institute of Medical Physics, University of Sydney. She has a background in Physics and Math (BSc (Adv), Hons I) and a PhD in Physics. Her area of interest lies specifically in SPECT quantification and clinical applications, in particular for radionuclide therapy. Her research in quantitative image development and applications for radionuclide therapy has been recognized through awards such as the EANM Eckert & Ziegler Award (2015), the ACPSEM Boyce Worthley Young Achiever Award (2017) and the ANZSNM Lowenthal Award (2020). She is heavily involved in both Masters and PhD student supervision, as well as lecturing in medical physics at Sydney University and with the Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists. She is actively involved in development of clinical trials and site assessment for inter-site image comparison and analysis of data for new radiopharmaceuticals. Specialties: development and validation of quantitative SPECT; whole body pharmacokinetic analysis; dosimetry of radionuclide therapies; dose response assessment; optimisation of radioembolisation.
Biosketch | Irène Buvat graduated as a nuclear physicist at Paris Sud University in France. During her PhD studies she specialized in physics for nuclear medicine applications and followed a training in biology at the same time. She is currently the head of the Laboratory of Translational Imaging in Oncology supported by Inserm and Institut Curie in France. Her main field of interest is quantification in Nuclear Medicine to make the most of emission tomography images. In 2001, she was one of the initiators and then the spokesperson (2005-2016) of the OpenGATE collaboration (http://www.opengatecollaboration.org) that develops the Monte Carlo simulation GATE opensource software for modelling emission tomography, computed tomography and radiation therapy. In 2015, she launched the development of a freeware, LIFEx (www.lifexsoft.org), for calculating radiomic features from any medical image. She is serving as an associate editor of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. She is highly involved in teaching and has supervised 28 PhD students. Specialties: quantification in Emission Tomography, Positron Emission Tomography, radiomics, artificial intelligence in medical imaging, freeware development, open science.
