In collaboration with the Institute of Nuclear Medicine (UCLH) and the Dementia Research Centre, TIG presented 5 papers at the IEEE NSS-MIC 2014 conference in Seattle. Among them, two were short-listed to participate in the student paper competitions.

The proceedings will soon be available on the IEEE Xplore website.

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.
