Abstract: Computer-integrated diagnosis and therapy relies heavily on the use of medical imaging, image computing, modeling and visualization tools that enable accurate and faithful extraction and tracking of features of interest from multi-modality medical images, as well as the integration of imaging data with spatial localization and tracking system to enable clinicians to guide and navigate instruments when delivering treatments during image-guided or robot-assisted interventions. This lecture will describe several examples of tools and techniques that use and leverage routine imaging data to help quantify anatomy and disease biomarkers, achieve better visualization, or build models of patient specific anatomy to help build simulation and visualization platforms that can be used to customize diagnosis, therapy planning and delivery.
Bio: Cristian A. Linte is an Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Imaging Science at Rochester Institute of Technology. Dr. Linte’s research focuses on the development, implementation, evaluation and re-clinical translation of medical image computing, visualization, and navigation cyber-infrastructure to provide intelligent solutions in support of computer-assisted diagnosis and therapy. Dr. Linte’s research group at RIT has been home for more than 25 graduate and undergraduate students in imaging science, engineering, mathematical modeling and computer science. His research has been disseminated in more than 120 peer reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings and has been recognized at several international conferences, with more than $4M in funding support from funding agencies in the United States (NIH and NSF) and Canada (Natural Sciences and Engineering research Council, Canadian Institutes of Health research, and Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada). In addition to his active involvement in IEEE world, Dr. Linte has served as char, lead organizer, and editor of several international workshops, conference, journals and journal special issues, and conference proceedings.
