Medical Image Analysis

 

Our mission. To advance the state of the art in efficient machine learning and computer vision, and marry them with medical expertise to help with computer-aided diagnosis, personalized treatment and efficient data management.

Brief project description. Analysis of medical images is essential in modern medicine. With the ever increasing amount of patient data, new challenges and opportunities arise for different phases of the clinical routine, such as diagnosis, treatment and monitoring.

The InnerEye research project focuses on the automatic analysis of patients' medical scans. It uses state of the art machine learning techniques for the:

  • automatic delineation and measurement of healthy anatomy and anomalies;
  • robust registration for monitoring disease progression;
  • semantic navigation and visualization for improved clinical workflow;
  • development of natural user interfaces for medical practitioners.

Some recent achievements. In Sep 2012 our algorithm for the automatic detection and localization of anatomy within Computed Tomography scans has obtained FDA approval. Some of this technology is now incorporated within the Caradigm's Amalga System.
