The cooperation between clinicians and engineers is a key condition to delivering healthcare engineering innovations. Dr Carole Sudre (UCL, London) and Dr Beatriz Gómez-Ansón (Hospital de Sant Pau, Barcelona) teamed up to develop more efficient medical imaging assessment.

 

From raw data to novel diagnosis techniques 

Big data and machine learning are often seen as having great potential for innovation in the medical sector. But what’s the path from building databases to revolutionising medical diagnosis?

The Translational Imaging Group, in collaboration with the Queen's Square Multiple Sclerosis Centre, recently published work in Magnetic Resonance in Medicine on an optimized framework for qMT on spinal cord. 

We would like to offer our congratulations to Zach Eaton-Rosen who has recently been awarded an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Doctoral Prize. This scheme supports a two-year fellowship for exceptional early-career researchers. 

Zach is a PhD graduate of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging (CDT) at UCL, during which time he secured a four-month placement at Harvard Medical School working on infant MRI data collected from a preterm cohort and developing novel imaging algorithms that aimed to predict their future health. This supported Zach’s progression to a fellowship and post-doctoral research associate position within the Translational Imaging Group (TIG).

UCL research led by the Dementia Research Centre and involving members of the Translational Imaging Group (TIG) was featured in an article in The i this week, written by CDT Deputy Director Gary Zhang.

The next joint meeting of the European Committee for Treatement and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) and the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) will be held between the 25th and 28th of October 2017 in Paris, France. It has been a productive year for TIG members of staff working closely with the Queen Square MS Research Centre who have contributed to several research findings to be presented at the meeting.

Why is research important? What’s the end result of this activity? How can this help me or people with my condition in the future?

These were just a few of the questions we heard from the visitors at our stall last week. The fourth annual research open day at University College London Hospital (UCLH) took place on 4th of July and attracted hundreds of visitors, with more than 40 interactive booths and countless medical technologies on display.

We are pleased to congratulate Juan Eugenio Iglesias for winning the Best Poster Award at the Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI) conference 2017 for is work on "Globally Optimal Coupled Surfaces for Semi-Automatic Segmentation of Medical Images". This award was shared with Adrian Dalca et al's poster on "Population Based Image Imputation".
