CAMCA Researcher Xiang Li received the 2021 MGH Thrall Innovation Grants Award. The award will fund Dr. Li's research of lung cancer screening by transformed chest X-ray imaging, entitled "Chest Radiographs-based Lung Cancer Screening by the DeepProjection Technique". The work aims to develop a safer and faster lung cancer screening solution based on the DeepProjection technique previously developed by Dr. Li, which is an AI-driven model that can generate near-real volumetric 3D CT image from a single 2D Chest Radiograph (CXR) image. By replacing CT scans with CXR-generated pseudo-CTs for lung cancer screening, the proposed project can lead to reduced radiation doses, scan time and cost, as well as better availability for remote healthcare sites.
