MedTech West imaging seminar

Research on advanced algorithms for medical image analysis and 3D
construction, medical image retrieval, and bioinformatics.

Presenter

Jie Yang, Professor and Director of Institute of Image
Processing and Pattern recognition, Shanghai Jiao
.

Jie Yang will be presenting methodologies and advanced algorithms for medical image
analysis and 3D construction (e.g. image segmentation, 3D rendering and processing
interactive cutting). He will also demonstrate the applications in computer aided design
for craniofacial surgery, liver surgery and neurological surgery; computer aided
diagnoses for whole body bone scintigraphy. Research and advanced algorithms for
image retrieval (e.g., invariant feature detection and description), for bioinformatics (e.g.
feature selection, manifold learning, clustering) are also presented.

Jie Yang is currently Professor and Director of Institute of Image Processing and Pattern
recognition, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China). He is the principal investigator of
more than 30 national and Chinese ministry scientific research projects in image
processing, pattern recognition, data mining, and artificial intelligence. He has published
several books, and many articles in both national and international academic journals
and conferences. Jie Yang received BSc in Automatic Control, 1985, MSc in Pattern
 Recognition & Intelligent System, 1988, both in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China),
and Ph.D. at Department of Computer Science, University of Hamburg (Germany) in 
1994.
