In the NIST lab we develop computer vision image processing algorithms for analysis of medical images that are focused on registration and segmentation. These techniques are applied to different research projects that include:

  • image guided neurosurgery
  • disease diagnosis, and
  • prognosis and quantification for diseases such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, schizophrenia and degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dementia.
