The mission of the BioMedIA group is to develop novel, computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical images. The group focuses on pursuing blue-sky research, including:

  • Development of algorithms for image acquisition, image analysis and image interpretation – in particular in the areas of registration, reconstruction, tracking, segmentation and modelling.
  • Machine learning for the extraction of clinically useful information from medical images – in particular for computer-aided detection and diagnosis, computer-aided treatment planning, computer-guided interventions and therapy.

We have particularly strong interest in the application of imaging and computing technology to improve the understanding brain development (in-utero and ex-utero), to improve the diagnosis and stratification of patients with dementia, stroke and traumatic brain injury as well as for the comprehensive diagnosis and management of patients with cardiovascular disease.
