A MedTech West seminar – We see faces everywhere – but how?

Insights from brain imaging studies. From the moment we are born, humans have the amazing capacity to detect and orient towards faces. Our face perception system is evolved to the point that we are sometimes even start seeing faces where there are none (e.g. the man in the moon). In this seminar, Nouchine Hadjikhani will present results of more than a decade of research on face perception using fMRI and magneto-encephalography, both in normal individuals and in individuals with... Read More

Master thesis presentation – Assessing blood perfusion and fluid balance in residual limbs

Abstract  For people with vascular dysfunction because of diabetes and/or peripheral vascular disease, amputation may be a lifesaving operation. Amputation can reduce the risk of foot ulcers and limb necrosis, while it at the same time allows the patients to maintain mobility. However, individuals that undergo amputation due to vascular dysfunction may continue to have problems with blood perfusion that can affect the general health of their residual limb. While the use of vacuum-assisted... Read More

Docent lecture – Improved detection and characterisation of breast cancer using multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging and novel computer-aided detection/diagnosis (CAD) techniques

Andrew Mehnert’s research focuses on the development of medical image analysis methods for clinical imaging applications. He has both academic and commercial research experience in the areas of optical microscopy (automated cytology), MRI (breast cancer, musculoskeletal sports injuries), and x-ray CT (forensic identification of human dental remains). His present research focus is on the development of computer-aided detection/diagnosis (CAD) tools for both optical microscopy... Read More
