Medical Imaging

This activity is focused on the development of innovative algorithms and techniques to perform image segmentation and analysis. Research topics are the segmentation of ultrasound images of the carotid artery, the reconstruction of the vascular tree in small organs using contrast enhanced ultrasound scans, the analysis of cerebral function by magnetic resonance imaging and near-infrared spectroscopy, and the early detection of breast cancer by dynamic thermography.

The major part of this activity is devoted to the development of methodologies for the computer-aided diagnosis, especially in the fields of neurology and oncology.
