Internship: Supporting radiologists with Artificial Intelligence

Engineering/Technical Jobs
1901232 Requisition #
Background of Barco Healthcare:

Barco develops high-precision medical display systems to bring enhanced visualization and diagnosis across the healthcare enterprise, including radiology, mammography, surgery, pathology, clinical review imaging and dentistry. Barco's full line of color and grayscale diagnostic displays, display controllers and softcopy Quality Assurance (QA) tools facilitate confident diagnoses while guaranteeing perfect image quality over time and across displays. Next to this Barco is also an important player in the Digital OR market with the Barco NEXXIS platform, a unique image management solution that builds on the IP network to ensure complete integration of all devices in and beyond the operating room.

Goal & Description of the project:
Barco Healthcare is continuously searching how the work of doctors can be made more efficient and how they can be supported in making the correct diagnosis. These are two very important factors when developing new products and visualization solutions.

 Barco Healthcare has built up quite some knowledge during the past years about the visualization of medical images. It has an extensive knowhow on calibration and stabilization of medical displays for the different acquisition modalities, as well as on the image processing needed to increase visibility of the important features in the image.


Looking beyond the display, extending our view to the reading environment (including the radiologist and the way he/she interacts with the system), we do see some opportunities for further improvement. By becoming aware of different aspects of the environment (measuring fatigue, detect interrupts, detect modality of the study...) we want to provide useful feedback (e.g. suggest break or switch to less intense tasks) and further automate display/system settings where it makes sense (e.g. apply modality specific calibration).

As intern you will be a fulltime member of the research team that will investigate how Artificial Intelligence can ease the work of physicians by assisting them in their tasks. You will help in identifying the different frameworks for Artificial Intelligence available in the world. You will support initial experiments to learn the advantages and disadvantages of the different algorithms and define the type of data which could be used. You will train the algorithms and improve the performance. The goal is to achieve a proof of concept that shows how artificial intelligence can improve the performance, the speed and the comfort of radiologists.

About internships at Barco: 
The Technology and Innovation group of Barco Healthcare specialises in designing, testing and validating new display technologies and imaging system components specifically for life-critical healthcare applications. 
Internships within the Technology and Innovation group consist of 3 to 6 months working fulltime in the lab environment, interacting with the multi-national, multi-disciplinary R&D teams. 
During your internship you will be guided by our engineers who are world-experts in the field of medical display image quality. You will have the possibility to work together with them to bring the future to today’s medical imaging technology. 
You will also have the opportunity to contribute to cutting edge research by applying your technical knowledge, and you will have ample opportunity and support for developing your industrial writing and presentation skills. 

We are a lively and international group, including nationalities from Europe and around the world. Our past interns have come from a variety of countries, including students from Belgium, France, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Lithuania and even Indonesia.

 Required Skills:
  • Knowledge of image processing
  • Knowledge of Python and/or C/C++
  • Experience with Artificial Intelligence (for instance TensorFlow) is a plus. 

Also, you …
