Summary

Medical images contain plenty of information, but some of it remains hidden on standard two-dimensional slice or surface representations. My research mission is to develop image processing methods that extract, filter and present such information in a way that makes it useful in clinical medicine as biomarkers of disease. I want to enable clinicians to see more on images of the adult human brain. This could change the lives of people with dementia symptoms: an earlier and more accurate diagnosis alleviates uncertainty and increases the hope for successful interventions. In the fight against Alzheimer disease and other dementias, biomarkers could accelerate the development of drugs that slow down or prevent disease progress, effectively improving patients' prognosis.
