Project title: Deep Transfer Learning for Precise Human Surgical Margin Assessment using OCT Images from Canine
Project description: Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a life-threatening condition for humans, and incomplete surgical removal is a serious clinical problem. We will develop an AI tool that could be used to augment real-time OCT surgical margin assessment for clinicians, which will help cut down the recurrence of STS.
