Dr. Dona Lemus is broadly interested in image processing and image analysis with particular interest in the medical images used for radiation therapy treatment planning and image guided treatments. Her research interests are shaped by the emerging trends towards deep learning systems that enable personalized medicine and adaptive planning.
Currently, her research focuses on generating high quality synthetic narrow beam computed tomography images from low quality cone beam computed tomography images to enable fast and accurate dose calculation. Additionally, she is exploring the feasibility of using cycle consistent generative adversarial networks to create virtual exogenous contrast on synthetic images with the end goal of enhancing the target volume for daily adaptive radiation therapy.
