AI-assisted contouring of sarcomas to improve safety of proton therapy in children.
Chief Investigator: Mr Vu Minh Hieu Phan [Early Career Researcher]
Funding Amount: $39,570
Recipient: The University of Adelaide
Overview: Proton therapy can benefit cancer treatment by precisely targeting tumours while sparing healthy tissues. This project will develop and pilot artificial intelligence methods to improve paediatric sarcoma contouring for radiation planning. Improved contouring benefits children by reducing radiation exposure to critical structures, supporting healthy growth, and minimising long-term side effects.
