Statistical Shape Analysis with Applications to Medical Imaging
Telephone: +47 456 96 867
My current main research focuses on the statistical analysis and modeling of shapes of 3D objects such as organs in medical imaging with application to segmentation e.g. of the prostate from MR or CT images.
The key point of statistical shape analysis is the introduction of prior knowledge to cope the lack of image contrast between adjacent tissues in medical images where surgical intervention or treatment planning are based on a precise description of internal organs such as the prostate.
