Christian Payer who has successfully finished his master thesis in our institute in May of this year, has been nominated as one of nine "Runners Up for Student Best Paper Awards" at the MICCAI conference (www.miccai2015.org) in Munich in October 2015.
The Medical Image Understanding and Analysis Conference (MIUA) 2015 took place at the University of Lincoln, Lincolnshire, UK from 15th to 17th July 2015. MIUA is a UK-based meeting for the communication of research related to image analysis and its application to medical imaging and biomedicine. The conference provides an opportunity to present and discuss research in medical image understanding and analysis, which is a rapidly growing subject with ever increasing real-world applicability.
Our colleague Christian Payer successfully finished his master thesis on on May 28th, 2015. The goal of his work was to separate and analyze arteries and veins in thoracic computed tomography images. The proposed algorithm performs this task without manual intervention and is based on two integer programs. The results of the algorithm can be used to compare the morphology of arteries and veins. This information can support physicians to be able to perform an early diagnosis of lung diseases.
