Tonima Ali has succesfully defended her master’s thesis entitled “Real-time Voxel-based Quantitative T2 MRI Analysis and Applications”. Congratulations Tonima! A summary of the thesis can be found…
Dr. Ross Mitchell was interviewed by CTV about software developed in part at the Imaging Informatics lab. The software allows doctors to view medical images remotely and securely on a smartphone.
Lab member Jayesh Modi has contributed to designing of a website explaining the Alberta Stroke Program Early CT score (ASPECTS). The website includes interactive content for utilizing the 10-point quantitative topographic CT scan score to its full potential.
Research from Mike Roberts and Jeff Packer has been featured on Nvidia Corporation’s website. The research describes a new massively parallel algorithm that will improve treatment planning and assessment by allowing physicians to quickly, accurately, and reliably identify and measure objects in 3D medical images. The new algorithm is 14x faster than previous algorithms without affecting accuracy.
Congratulations to Quinn Thompson for receiving an Alberta Innovates Health Solutions (AHFMR) scholarship. This award will help Quinn in his efforts to create technology helping stroke physicians identify brain regions at risk of ischemic stroke.
The imaging informatics lab is summarized in Alberta Innovates’ magazine Research News. The article describes many of the virtual tools developed in the lab.
Lab member Thor Bjarnison gave a public lecture and defended his doctoral thesis Friday, April 23rd. The defense was a success. Congratulations Thor!
Story by CBC Calgary discusses the importance of displaying medical images on portable devices and features Dr. Ross Mitchell and resMD.
Hing Cheng has developed tools for 1D time series and 2D images, appropriately named FTFT-1 and FTFT-2D.
Jayesh Modi’s abstract entitled, Evaluation of iPhone-Based Teleradiology Solution for the Diagnosis of Cervical Spine Trauma: A Feasibility Study, is to be presented at the American Society of Neuroradiology in Boston on May 17th, 2010. Lab member Alexander Earl is a coauthor on the abstract.
We have released a new podcast of a lecture Thorarin Bjarnason gave at Oxford. His talk, titled Quantitative T2 (qT2): more than just a shade of grey, is about using T2 relaxation in MRI to determine subvoxel information. Typically, T2 relaxation is only used as a contrast mechanism. In this lecture Bjarnason introduces the concept of qT2, highlights some interesting literature, and discusses his PhD research on this topic.
Mike Roberts of the Imaging Informatics team attended the 2009 Nvidia GPU Technology Conference to present his research on level set segmentation of large medical data sets. The conference focused on parallel computing, visual computing, and novel applications of Nvidia GPUs.
This easy to use Dicom medical imaging package for Mac OS X combines Quicklook, Spotlight, Quartz Composer, Window/Level and a Dicom file analyzer . It is released as open source.
A product developed by our industrial sponsor, Calgary Scientific Inc. The 3D rendering technology behind this product was originally developed in our lab. ResolutionMD is a powerful medical visualization and analysis platform. It uses Calgary Scientific’s PureWeb technology to deliver interactive advanced visualization to any common web browser, or Apple Inc’s iPhone.
Several members of the Imaging Informatics team attended the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The conference focused on the development of applications for both the Mac OS X operating system as well as the iPhone.
The ResolutionMD for iPhone application allows physicians to analyze DICOM images on an iPhone was successfully formatted as an iPhone application. The application was developed in our lab and has been purchased by Calgary Scientific Incorporated.
The Imaging Informatics team recently attended the 2009 iCore summit in Banff from August 20-22. The focus of the conference was on information security and privacy, as well as quantum computing and cryptography. The lab received accolades for a poster on quantitative T2 analysis by Tonima Ali.
