Medical image analysis is taking images and
extracting information at a much higher level
then you would get from the numbers and the images.
So for example, a doctor might care about where a
particular organ is located exactly in preparation for
surgery; how the disease affects the anatomy;
what's common and what's different among people in
a population, looking at their medical scans.
We have several projects in the group right now that
all take large collections of medical images and
build computational models of common anatomy in a
population; how that anatomy changes due to a particular
disease. By characterizing anatomical changes, for example
in the brain induced by a neurodegenerantive disease, we
can start understanding how the disease starts, progresses
and affects the brain.
I love snowboarding in the winter. I dance throughout
the year and I have a 2-year-old who is delightful
she keeps me busy and entertained.
