LaTIM UMR 1101 – Team ACTION
2 avenue Foch, CHRU Morvan, 29609 Brest
Principal Investigator: Prof. Mathieu Hatt

The French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) unit UMR1101 is developing multidisciplinary research in association with the Faculty of Medicine of the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO), the University Hospital Centre in Brest and the Advanced National School of Telecommunications in Brittany within a close partnership. One of the major axis of development concern the use of quantitative multimodality imaging within the context of guiding both interventional and non-interventional therapies. LaTIM has developed regional, national, and international collaboration networks which facilitates working with the best partners in each of the fields concerned. Methodological research is extended by the integration, evaluation and validation of their results within technological clinical research platforms and by the preparation of industrial transfer operations (e.g. Varian, GE, Siemens). The team ACTION has a strong track record in PET/CT image analysis and processing both in terms of new methodologies development and translational activities with clinical results. It was one of the first teams worldwide to apply texture analysis to PET images, and it has published more than 20 papers related to radiomics-type studies in both PET/CT and MRI between 2011 and 2016.
