Invited lecture (under schedule)
Dr. Aberle is currently the national Principal Investigator of the ACRIN-NLST (American College of Radiology Imaging Network component of the National Lung Screening Trial). The NLST is an NCI-sponsored randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of low dose helical CT versus chest radiography for lung cancer screening. The NLST is the joint collaboration of ACRIN and the Lung Screening Study.
Dr. McNitt-Gray’s research interests involve investigations into X-ray computed tomography (CT) imaging with the goal of maximizing the information that can be extracted from the resulting image data.
These activities include research into:
The physics of CT image acquisition including estimating radiation dose and assessing image quality
Image processing techniques to analyze and extract information from the CT image data, including computer aided detection and diagnosis (CAD)
