ABOUT

Medical images play a critical role in the diagnosis and monitoring of disease, and the planning and guidance of surgical therapies.  Our group develops and applies sophisticated image processing and analysis techniques to extract, quantify, and distill information from medical images, ultimately leading to more accurate diagnoses and more precise surgical interventions.
