Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health

RESEARCH FUNDING

Image Processing, Visual Perception and Display

This program supports the design and development of algorithms for post-acquisition image processing and analysis. These algorithms include methods for image segmentation, image registration, atlas generation, morphometry measurement, and the determination of function and structure from medical images.

Also supported by this program is the development of theoretical models and analysis tools to evaluate and improve the perception of medical images. This may include diagnostic-performance evaluation, assessment of computer-aided diagnosis technologies, statistical models for evaluation of observer performance, and assessment of observer variability.

Finally, this program supports research in the optimization of image display for improved detection.
