Abstract

In biomedical informatics, a large amount of image data has been collected to support clinical diagnosis, treatment decision and medical prognosis. The large volume and the diversity of informatics across different imaging modalities require advanced and high-throughput image computing technologies for more accurate disease detection, deeper understanding of the mechanisms of disease progression, and better healthcare in precision medicine. With the ever- increasing amount of biomedical image data, it is very important to design and develop efficient technologies for large-scale biomedical image analysis. This talk will describe high-throughput biomedical image computing methods for digital health, focusing on three significant topics: object detection, segmentation, and image understanding in medical diagnosis. Specifically, I will present several novel machine learning and imaging informatics technologies to process biomedical big image data and introduce the applications of these technologies in medical diagnosis
