“How to Produce Radioactive Gold Nanoparticles  (Experimental Part of the Production)”

Prof. Dr. Kattesh Katti

Dr. Amal Yousif Al-Yasiri

 
Organised by Prof. Dr. Kattesh Katti, University of Missouri- Columbia-USA & Dr. Amal Yousif Al-Yasiri, College of Dentistry – University of Baghdad 

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in radioactive nanotechnology for cancer therapy and imaging. This interest stems from properties of radioactive nanoparticles that allow therapeutic nanoparticles to be designed and created to match the size of tumor vasculature, allowing oncologists to achieve optimal therapeutic payload with homogenous distribution and minimum leakage of radioactivity from the target site.

This workshop covers the following:

  • Explain a new protocol to produce radioactive gold nanoparticles by using phytochemical reducing agent mangiferin (which is extracted from Mango fruit) in order to use them to treat and image cancer.
  • Explain a new protocol to produce radioactive 199Au- nanoparticles by using sodium citrate as reductant and stabilizing agent in order to use them for imaging purposes.

Hybrid Approach Based Feature Selection for MRI Brain Tumor Classification”

Iraqi Laser Scientist Society

 

Organised by Iraqi Laser Scientist Society

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the brain tumor is one of the serious diseases, where
large number of people around the world including the children are affected by this disease. Developing a
system to detect brain tumor in an early stage is crucial to save the life of many people. This workshop will cover the following:

  • A hybrid Principal Component and Rough Set theory(PCA+RST) approach is proposed to reducing the dimension in the data set. The approach is evaluated using ADNT and OASIS standard databases. The novelty of the proposed new hybrid PCA+RST approach is to obtain the most significant features for enhancing classification algorithms. Four classification algorithms namely J48, Support Vector Machine (SVM), K-nearest neighbour (KNN) and Naive Bayes have been implemented.
  • Evaluation and comparison of the proposed approach with alternative approaches like DWT+SVM, DWT+PCA+ANN, DWT+PCA+KNN, STRSPOS-QR+J48 and STRSPOS-QR+Naive
    Bayes is presented. The proposed approach outperforms both these approaches.

“Philips Solutions in Digital Pathology”
