Image Processing & Visualization
For use in biomedical education and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, LHNCBC conducts R&D in the analysis, presentation, and retrieval of images and the creation of visualizations. Areas of active investigation include image compression, image enhancement, image recognition and understanding, image transmission, and user interface design. Our research has several objectives: build advanced imaging tools for biomedical research; create image-based tools for medical training and assessment; investigate design principles for, and develop multimedia image/text databases with particular focus on database organization, indexing and retrieval; develop Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) techniques for automated indexing of medical images by image features.
