Research Summary:

As medical imaging techniques become ever more powerful, the task of interpreting the images and detecting and characterizing disease becomes much more complex. Dr. Martel's group focuses on developing novel medical image analysis techniques in three main areas, as outlined below.

  • Tools to provide diagnostic support to physicians and radiologists: Dr. Martel's group is developing a computer-aided detection and diagnosis system for breast magnetic resonance imaging, which will allow them to detect cancer earlier and with greater specificity.
  • Methods for assessing the severity of disease and the response to therapy: Areas of interest include the analysis of dynamic contrast-enhanced images using multivariate techniques such as independent component analysis and the correction of patient motion using deformable image registration.
  • Use of machine learning and computer vision techniques to analyze digital pathology images: This concerns the correlation of histology with in vivo imaging using 3-D reconstruction of microscopy sections and co-registration techniques.
