Topic:  

Turning Pixels into Meaningful Information - Machine Learning and Intelligent Image Computing in the Age of Big Medical Image Data  

Speaker:Professor Guoyan Zheng  

Date: April 19th Wednesday 10:00- 11:00 AM  

Venue: 317 conference room, the hall of Yifu scientific center    

 

Abstract:  

The importance of medical images for diagnosis, therapy assessment and planning cannot be under-estimated. Clinically well-established imaging techniques include CT, MRI, X-ray, molecular imaging, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, PET-CT, and mammography. The size of medical image data can range anywhere from a few megabytes for a single study to hundreds or thousands of megabytes per study. Such data requires not only large storage capacities but also demands fast and accurate algorithms if any decision assisting automation or surgical interventions were to be conducted based on the data.  

In this talk, I will put forward a mindset of machine learning and intelligent image computing that allow us to address many of the fundamental limitations of conventional approaches in medical imaging. More specifically, I will show comprehensive machine learning and intelligent image computing methods for the tasks of landmark and object detection, image segmentation and 3D reconstruction from 2D images. In comparison with conventional methods, our methods are scalable for big medical image data, have far fewer requirements, and are better suited for pre-clinical and clinical usage.
