CIS Department Talk - November 24, 2009

The Department of Computer and Information Science Presents

Speaker: Dr. Chia-Ling Tsai, Iona College
Topic:Large-scale Quantitative Image Analysis in Biomedical Imaging
Date:November 24, 2009 at 11:30 a.m.
Place:John Mulcahy Hall, Room 140


With the fast advancement in imaging technology for biomedical studies, image processing is playing an increasingly important role in large-scale quantitative studies. This talk is to introduce an exciting application of image processing techniques in biomedical imaging: large-scale brain mapping. Techniques involved include blob segmentation for nuclei, tracing of line structures for processes of cells, tube segmentation for blood vessels, classification for labeling of the nuclei, and 3D registration of images to overcome the hardware limitation of the microscope.
