graphicBiomedical Image Analysis for Image Guided Interventions Laboratory

Biomedical image analysis techniques are transforming the way many clinical interventions are performed and enabling the creation of new computer-assisted interventions and surgical procedures. The Biomedical Image Analysis for Image-Guided Interventions Laboratory (BAGL) investigates novel medical image processing and analysis techniques with emphasis on creating image analysis-based solutions to clinical problems. The lab explores state-of-the-art image analysis techniques, such as deep learning, statistical shape models, graph search methods, level set techniques, image registration techniques, and image-based bio-models. The lab is currently developing novel systems for cochlear implant procedures including systems that use image analysis techniques for (1) comprehensive pre-operative surgery planning and intra-operative guidance and (2) post-operative image analysis to optimize hearing outcomes.
