The Science Half-Hour : Towards the individual computer-assisted analysis of brain images

The Science Half-Hour is back! See you on Thursday, October 10th at 1:45pm in conference room Jacques-Louis Lions (building C) for a new edition of your favorite meeting.

  • Date : 10/10/2019
  • Place : Room Jacques Louis Lions, building C - 1:45pm

We will be welcoming you for coffee at 1:30pm in the Daumesnil area. 

This half-hour is designed to present to all scientists a theme, its interest and all the questions related to it, with the goal to answer the question "why do we conduct research in this field?".

Summary of the conference :  Neuroimaging offers an unmatched description of the brain’s structure and physiology, which explains its crucial role in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders. In clinical practice, brain images are mostly analysed visually.

The performance of this approach greatly depends on the observer’s experience and is not in favour of centres where advanced expertise in image reading is limited. I will present two computer-aided approaches for the individual analysis of brain images. The first one is an anomaly detection framework that generates patient-specific maps summarising the pathology’s distribution in the brain. The second approach explores how visualisation techniques can improve the interpretability of neural networks used for computer-aided diagnosis.

All our conferences are free, so make sure you come!

See you soon!
