Partner 3 - Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne - EPFL

The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – EPFL) is one of the two leading institutions in research and education in engineering in Switzerland. Like its sister institution, ETHZ in Zurich, it has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. EPFL counts more than 250 laboratories, about 5000 bachelor/master students, more than 1600 PhD students and about 240 professors.

The Signal Processing Laboratory 5 (LTS5) of EPFL is directed by Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran. It counts some 20 researchers, both PhD students and post-docs, active in signal and image analysis. LTS5's core competences include image analysis (segmentation, Partial Difference Equations in image analysis, Scale-space analysis, a-priori information in image analysis), multimodal signal processing with applications to medical image analysis, surveillance or human-computer interaction.

Research in Thrombus : image analysis
EPFL is the leader of WP3, image processing. EPFL works on the development of fast and robust methods for vessel and aneurism segmentation in 3D CT images, as well as for aneurism wall motion tracking in 4D datasets, as an input for rupture risk assessment.

Team of THROMBUS :
The Thrombus team at EPFL, directed by Prof. Jean-Phliippe Thian, involves currently Mrs Shima Sepehri, Phd student, Mr Pascal Hagmann, research assistant, with the support of Dr Dominique Zosso.
