  • A MedTech West seminar: Using FPGA technology and heterogeneous designs to accelerate image analysis and microwave applications

    Welcome to a seminar with Sven Holmquist, CEO, Synective Labs. This presentation and follow-up discussion will cover the subject of acceleration. Synective Labs has worked within the acceleration niche for more than 10 years and has accelerated algorithms by optimization and the use of FPGA, GPU and heterogeneous designs in many different domains. By implementing algorithms on FPGAs, the computational speed could increase 10-100 times with decreased power consumption, leading…

    A MedTech West seminar -Recent studies on medical image analysis and computer-aided diagnosis

    with Prof. Jie Yang from the Institute of Image Processing and Pattern Recognition, Shanghai JiaoTong Univ., China. Abstract:   In this seminar, some recent studies on medical image analysis and computer aided diagnosis from the Institute of IPPR at Shanghai JiaoTong University (China) are presented. First, a demonstration of a range of medical image analysis results is given. We will then focus on describing 3 newly developed methods in recent…

    First day of the 16th Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering & Medical Physics and Medicinteknikdagarna 2014!

    The first day of the IFMBE’s Nordic-Baltic conference with the Swedish MTF (Svensk Förening för Medicinsk Teknik & Fysik) annual national meeting in biomedical engineering at Svenska Mässan in Gothenburg is over. IFMBE´s president, Ratko Magjarevic, opened the conference and the day ended with a welcome reception held by the City of Gothenburg.  For tomorrow, we look forward to a broad and interesting program with lots of inspiring and educational talks.

    MedTech West part of a collaborative project that receives 34 million kr. grant

    Justin F. Schneiderman, researcher at MedTech West and Sahlgrenska Academy has, together with colleagues at Chalmers University of Technology, Karolinska Institute’s NatMEG center, and Sahlgrenska Academy recently been granted almost 35 million SEK for the collaborative project NeuroSQUID. Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW), the largest private financier of research in Sweden, granted the funding for a new 5-year project that combines nanotechnology and neuroscience. The project, under the leadingship…

    New vacancy for a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology and MedTech West

    In close collaboration with MedTech West, a new research group in medical image analysis is being established. The focus of the group is on development of new and more effectful medical imaging methods and systems for visualization, support and diagnostics. The main research problems include mathematical theory and algorithms for inverse problems such as reconstruction, segmentation and registration. Construction of complete prototype systems is also an important research output. Read…

    A MedTech West seminar: Microstructure imaging with diffusion MRI

    Introduced by professor Stephan Maier, Department of Radiology at Sahlgrenska University hospital Presented by Torben Schneider, research associate at University College London Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is typically used to identifying the macroscopic damage in spinal cord injury (SCI), but it provides little detail about the microscopically changes associated with the injury. Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is sensitive to the microstructural environment of water molecules, and therefore it provides unique insight…

    A MedTech West seminar: Under-sampled reconstruction techniques for accelerated magnetic resonance imaging

    NOTE! Monday is the last day to register to receive the light lunch. Introduced by professor Stephan Maier, Department of Radiology at Sahlgrenska University hospital and presented by Mohammad Kayvanrad, PhD, from Robarts Research Institute at the University of Western Ontario Due to physical and biological constraints and requirements on the minimum resolution and SNR, the acquisition time is relatively long in MRI. Accelerating the acquisitions without compromising the imaging quality…
