    • Computational Anatomy and Manifold Learning - Applications in Neuroimaging
  • Abstract
    • Three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) imaging plays an increasingly important role for the detection and diagnosis of neurological diseases. Currently, their early detection is heavily dependent on the subjective assessment of imaging data by clinicians. In this talk we will present approaches based on computational anatomy and machine learning that enable the accurate detection and diagnosis of neurological diseases. In particular we will show how registration and segmentation of neuro-anatomical structures can be used in conjunction with manifold learning techniques for the computer-aided detection of diseases in individual subjects, subtle group differences between populations and also allows the computer-aided quantification of temporal changes such as growth or atrophy in brain MR images.
  • Biography
    • Professor Daniel Rueckert joined the Visual Information Processing research group in 1999 and was appointed Professor of Visual Information Processing in 2005. He received an MSc in Computer Science from the Technical University Berlin and a PhD in Computer Science from Imperial College London. After his PhD studies, he worked as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Division of Radiological Sciences and Medical Engineering, King's College London. He has published more than 180 peer reviewed journal and conference articles. Professor Rueckert is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, a member of the editorial board of Medical Image Analysis and a referee for a number of international medical imaging journals and conferences. He has served as the keynote speaker and as a member of organising and programme committees at numerous conferences, e.g. he has been General Co-chair of MMBIA 2006 and Programme Co-Chair of MICCAI 2009.
