Researchers at UCL have been awarded a grant of £1m by the Department of Health and Wellcome Trust under the Health Innovation Challenge Fund initiative to tackle an obstacle to the continued growth of brain imaging by applying computer algorithms to detect anomalies in brain scans. Dr Parashkev Nachev and his collaborators Professors Geraint Rees, Professor Sebastien Ourselin, Professor Rolf Jager and Professor Xavier Golay are seeking to close this gap by applying novel computer-assisted algorithms so as to exploit much more of the information in each brain scan than a radiologist’s verbal report.
