STIR: Software for Tomographic Image Reconstruction: This is the most widely used open access software for PET image reconstruction. Its main publication, Thielemans, Tsoumpas, et al (2012), received the 2017 Rotblat Medal as the most cited research paper published by Physics in Medicine & Biology (IOP & IPEM) from 2012 to 2017. Dr Tsoumpas is co-administrator and member of the development team. He co-organises annually the corresponding users’ & developers’ meeting during the IEEE Medical Imaging Conference.
CCP-SyneRBI: Dr Tsoumpas is a co-investigator of this collaborative computational project which aims at developing a platform for synergistic image reconstruction. In addition, Dr Tsoumpas is co-investigator of the related Flagship Project which aims to develop a framework for efficient synergistic spatiotemporal reconstruction of PET-MR dynamic data. He co-organises Training Schools and Workshops on this theme. Both projects are led by Professor Kris Thielemans (UCL) and funded by EPSRC.
SAFIR: An active collaboration led by ETH Zurich which aims to building an innovative, high rate PET insert for MRI to be used for quantitative dynamic small animal imaging inside the bore of a commercial 7T MRI preclinical Bruker 70/30 scanner at the University Zurich. The project targets an unprecedented temporal resolution (about 5 seconds) and truly simultaneous PET/MR acquisition.
Cardiovascular PET-MR Imaging: This is an area of research led by Professor Zahi A. Fayad, Director of the Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Institute, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, where Dr Tsoumpas holds an Adjuct Professor appointment on PET-MR.
