Tomas Iešmantas

Associate Professor at KTU Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Tomas Iešmantas is an associate professor at the KTU Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, a member of the COST activity “Novel tools for test evaluation and disease prevalence estimation” committee. COST activity is a cooperation network initiated by researchers and innovators working in a certain field of science or technology development (innovation).

  • Application of machine/deep learning methods in medicine (diagnosis, treatment planning, response to drugs)
  • Development of computer vision systems for various applications
  • Application of Bayesian methods to estimate uncertainties in deep neural networks

Deep Learning for Multiple Sclerosis (DeepMS)

During this project, a representative sample of MRI scans of MS patients obtained, and it has been used construct an artificial intelligence-based system for the assessment fo lesions multiple sclerosis patients. Such a system enable faster and more accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and assessment of its stage and development over time. To achieve these goals, deep learning methods was used, and additionally, capsule neural network will be developed in order to gain more accuracy.

R&D of innovative technology for predicting and early warning of delayed cerebral Ischemia after subarachnoid hemorrhage (EWoDCI)

During the project, the researcher, together with other team members, will aim to develop an innovative method for predicting and early warning of cerebral vasospasms (CV) and delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after  spontaneous aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, to conduct clinical trials of this method, and to develop a software tool for predicting CV and DCI. Project partners: Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, VŠĮ Vilniaus universiteto ligoninės Santaros klinikos.

Risk reduction rationale through inspection

Coordinator – VTT (Finland), 2015-2016. T. Iešmantas’ duties in the project: researcher, executor.

R&D of Cell Nucleus Detection Model Based on Artificial Intelligence (DItect)

The researcher led the R&D of Cell Nucleus Detection Model Based on Artificial Intelligence (DItect) project. The project team aimed to develop the model based on the artificial intelligence used to detect cell nucleus in fluorescence images. Scientists focused on images containing noise, touching and partially overlapping nuclei, and possible observed under different lighting conditions.
