El IUMA inicia una nueva edición de sus IUMA Seminar Series con el Dr. Baowei Fei, EEUU, que tratará el tema "Computación de imágenes e intervenciones quirúrgicas guiadas por imágenes" sobre el uso de diferentes tipos de imágenes digitales con el objetivo de mejorar la detección, el diagnóstico y el tratamiento del cáncer de próstata, una enfermedad que actualmente afecta a uno de cada seis varones. El evento tendrá lugar el próximo viernes 12 de Septiembre y la hora de comienzo será a las 12:00 horas en la sala de telenseñanza del Edificio de Electrónica y Telecomunicación.

Biomedical imaging is a leading force in a new era of personalized medicine where quantitative methods of engineering and systems sciences have a pivotal role in disease detection, diagnostics, and treatment. There are urgent needs to develop image computing methods and software tools in clinical applications. Such quantitative imaging may require the use of multiple imaging modalities that provide anatomical, functional, and molecular information of various diseases. This talk will illustrate the power of multimodality imaging and image-guided interventions (IGI) technology for the diagnosis and therapy of prostate cancer, a disease that affects one in six men. Deformable image registration, automatic image segmentation, computer assisted intervention techniques have been developed and validated for the management of prostate cancer patients at Emory University. By combining multimodality imaging and multidimensional data to exploit our current knowledge of various diseases, this research is to have substantial positive implications for disease detection, diagnosis, and therapy.
