Computer Science Master Thesis: Radiotherapy DICOM - First/Second Generation Translation

We offer a Master’s Thesis position at the development department at RaySearch Laboratories in Stockholm related to DICOM Second Generation Radiotherapy Objects.

Background and purpose

RaySearch is a world-leader in software for cancer treatment. As a Master thesis student working at RaySearch, you will contribute to groundbreaking solutions that change the game for leading hospitals worldwide.

Radiation therapy equipment communicates partly using DICOM RT Objects. A second generation of this standard is being agreed upon within the community and will be released in the next few years. This will require software adaptation to our existing treatment planning system RayStation. To reduce complexity and maintenance we need solutions for translating first generation to second generation objects. The project is to analyze and explore such solutions.

Programming in C# and Python is encouraged but any appropriate technology is possible. As support you will have your supervisors at RaySearch, the RaySearch crew in general, and the DICOM team particularly.
