Medical Image Analysis
Subareas: Registration, Segmentation, Shape Analysis, Diffusion Imaging, Biomechanical Modeling, Image-guided Interventions
Medical Image Analysis research in the Department of Computer Science focuses on many problems of extracting and displaying information from CT, MR, ultrasound, X-ray, nuclear medicine images, and microscopy images to help physicians plan and deliver therapy and diagnose disease. Most of the recent work has been done on 3D medical images, and much of it involves describing the shape and longitudinal changes of anatomic objects of individuals and populations of individuals. We focus especially on applications in neuroscience, radiation oncology, and musculoskeletal diseases.
