The purpose of this translational project is to demonstrate the feasibility, robustness, and clinical value of automated image analysis approaches on a large database of routine clinical brain imaging. This position specifically aims at developing a fully automated anomaly detection and triage system for clinical magnetic resonance brain imaging. The successful applicant will also bridge the gap between algorithm developers and end users, enhancing the translation to clinical practice. Additional duties will involve the integration of the developed system into the in-house NifTK software platform and the deployment of a scalable image analysis platform aiming at facilitating ‘big data’ approaches to major neurological disorders.

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.
