Coordinating and Monitoring Quality Information for the Copernicus Services: Case Study with Optical Data.


Magellium and ESA are pleased to annonce a new publication of Sébastien Saunier and al. in IEEE related to quality coordination and monitoring for Copernicus services.

Abstract : One of the key elements of Copernicus is its Space Component (CSC). Beyond the development of the Sentinel missions, the CSC also entails the coordination of assets made available by the data providers of Copernicus Contributing Mission (CCMs) to implement a synergistic and complete operational system-of-systems in Europe for the provision of Earth Observation (EO) data. In the framework of Copernicus, ESA is in charge of developing an efficient and harmonised system to facilitate access to relevant EO data by the Copernicus Service Projects (CSPs). This is achieved through the implementation of the Copernicus Space Component Data Access (CSCDA).

Individual estimation of X ray dose received by patient during digital mammography

PhD mammography

On October 22th, Sophie Ribes has received her Ph.D. degree in radiophysics and medical imaging from Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse. Her work was founded and co-supervised by Magellium. The purpose of the thesis was the individual estimation of the X-ray dose received by patients during mammography.

Sophie has developed a methodology to estimate the 3D configuration of breast components (skin, gland, muscle and fat) during the mammography exam and estimate by Monte-Carlo simulation the radiation received by the gland.
