PhD thesis on using AI in combination with FRI

At the University of Antwerp, Maarten Lanclus, Research & Development director of Fluidda, successfully defended his thesis on the topic of using Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) in combination with FRI to enhance respiratory patient care.

He is the 7th person who has obtained a PhD degree for a thesis focused on Functional Respiratory Imaging and supported by Fluidda.

Virtually, all these PhD’s consist of a collection of published manuscripts in high ranking journals, which underscores the scientific and clinical importance and the novel nature of the work.

Fluidda thoroughly believes that sustainable innovation which is aimed at improving patients’ lives has to be based on solid science.

We will continue along this path with a strong focus on technological development that is deeply rooted in a clinical environment!

Maarten Lanclus' PhD on AI using FRI

Seeing the human anatomy and its physiological processes have been subject to hundreds of years of intensive study, I had the perception that there was little still left to discover regarding these matters. They tell us all the time how far medicine has come, and how much we’ve learned in recent years because of our strongly evolved technology. Yet I realized quite quickly the opposite is actually true. I learned our body is a complex machine, a beautifully orchestrated yet mysterious composition of entangled processes, still offering broad fields of research. From this fundamental idea I drew my motivation to work on artificial intelligence in the respiratory space, by means of combining it with Fluidda’s FRI technology/ The perfect research question to study lung structures, lung function, their interactions and their overall effect on human health.”
