DCS Conference on Image Analysis in Medicine 2021

Tuesday 29 June 2021 - 14:00 CET
Zoom online meeting

The Dutch Chemometrics Society (DCS) is excited to announce a half-day free online conference on Image Analysis in Medicine. The conference will feature two  experts on image analysis: Dr. Benjamin Balluff, Assistant Professor,  Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging institute (M4I), Maastricht University, the Netherlands and Dr. Leonard Wee,  Assistant Professor, Clinical Data Science; Maastro Clinic, Maastricht, the Netherlands.


Benjamin Balluff | VIB Conferences


Benjamin Balluff studied bioinformatics at the Weihenstephan University of Applied Sciences, Germany. Afterwards he did his PhD at the Institute of Pathology, Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen, Germany, to search for biomarkers in gastric cancer using mass spectrometry imaging (MSI). During his PostDoc time at Leiden University Medical Center he focused on the analysis of MSI data to describe intra-tumor heterogeneity. In 2015, he became Assitant Professor for Imaging Bioinformatics at Maastricht University where he strives for advancing MSI in terms of single cell analyses and integration with other omics technologies.

Talk title:  Data analysis in Mass Spectrometry Imaging.

Dr. L.Y.L. Wee - Maastro


Leonard Wee is qualified and accredited radiation oncology medical physicist, presently assistant professor in Clinical Data Science at MAASTRO Clinic/UM/MUMC+. His current research question involve use of large scale and geographically dispersed clinical medical imaging data (such as CT, PET and MRI scans) derived from real-world cancer cases to develop prognostic and predictive clinical outcome models.

Talk title : Using large-scale imaging data for quantitative analysis
