Event description
1/2 day workshop on extracting data from medical images

About this Event

In December 2019, Dr Ron Kikinis will be visiting UWA and Murdoch University under the Forrest Research Foundation Visiting Fellows Scheme.

Dr. Kikinis is the founding Director of the Surgical Planning Laboratory, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, and a Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School.

To see more on Ron's research, visit his homepage: here

To coincide with this visit, we are organising a 1/2 day workshop on medical imaging at Murdoch University. In addition to an opening presentation by Dr Kikinis (see below), talks will be given by representatives from WA universities, Medical Research Institutes and Hospitals, from the perspective of users of medical imaging to developers of computational tools for extracting information from these images.

Title: 3D Slicer: An Open Source Platform for Image Guided Therapy

Abstract: Research in Image Guided Therapy (IGT) requires substantial informatics capabilities. In terms of visualisation you need a flexible framework that allows integrated display of a variety of imaging and non-imaging data. You need versatile tools for segmentation, alignment (registration), and model-based analysis. Interfaces and api’s are required which enable two-way communication with devices such as imaging sources, trackers, instruments and robots. You also need a user interface that enables use of these technologies under the stringent conditions of an operating room environment (not a lot of room, limited computer resources, not a lot of time). To enable IGT a software platform must be extensible. 3D Slicer is a community supported open source software platform intended for research in IGT. The talk will cover some of the background and will provide a number of examples for the use of 3D Slicer in IGT

Additional presentations to include:

  • Karol Miller (Biomedical Eng., UWA) Towards seizure onset zone localisation for neuronavigation in epilepsy surgery
  • Belinda Brown (Exercise Physiology, Murdoch) Using dementia-related neuroimaging outcomes to understand the effect of lifestyle on the brain
  • Paul Parizel (Radiology, UWA) Artificial Intelligence and Quantitative Imaging in (Neuro)Radiology: the end of era or a new dawn breaking?
  • Ferdous Sohel (IT, Murdoch) Artificial Intelligence and Image Analysis towards health and medical research
  • Martin Ebert (Medical Physics, Charles Gairdner Hosp.) Quantitative imaging in oncology: applications and infrastructure
  • Chang-Joon Lee (Computational Biology, Murdoch) Incorporating various data sets in computational decision tools for patient management
  • Jeremy Parry (Pathology, Fiona Stanley Hosp.) Bringing AI into the daily life of a pathologist - challenges and potential benefits
  • Guanjin Wang (IT, Murdoch) Health Care Predictive Analytics using Computational Intelligence Techniques
  • Hamid Laga (IT, Murdoch) Statistics of Shapes, Deformations and Growth in Medical Imaging
