"Title to be announced"
Saeed Hajebi, Ph.D. Head of Big Data & AI at Vodafone
Imaging has become an essential component in many fields of bio-medical research and clinical practice. Radiologists identify and quantify tumors from MRI and CT scans, and neuroscientists detect regional metabolic brain activity from PET and functional MRI scans. Analysis of these diverse types of images requires sophisticated computerized quantification and visualization tools. This motivates us to design and develop standard user interface and analysis tools (computer aided diagnostics: CAD) so that researcher and clinicians can easily share research data and analyses, thereby enhancing their ability to study, diagnose, monitor and treat medical disorders with better accuracy. Image acquisition, preprocessing, segmentation of region of interest, feature extraction and classification are some of the key process steps that are performed in extracting useful information from medical images. Multimodal medical image analysis along with 3D information extraction is also the recent trends in computer aided diagnostics.
This lecture will discuss the fundamental process steps for medical image analysis, with a brief insight on the CAD Techniques for 3D reconstruction, localization and segmentation as applied in medical image analysis.
