Elisa Scalco

The information published in this page are entirely managed by ELISA SCALCO who is completely responsible for it.

PhD researcher and biomedical engineer, who is currently working at the ITB-CNR since 2019. She received her Bachelor's Degree in 2007 and her Master's Degree in 2009 from Politecnico di Milano. In 2014 she obtained her PhD in Biomedical Technologies from Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca defending a thesis entitled: "Evaluation of morphological and structural variations in parotid glands during radiotherapy in the head-and-neck district".

Interest areas:

Development and application of medical image processing and analysis methods, with a particular focus on image registration and features extraction from CT and MRI images (radiomics). The main application field is the oncology, for tumor diagnosis and classification and for the prediction of treatment response of tumor and normal tissues.
