Please join us at the fifth FAANA webinar on Sunday, September 29th at 12 pm Eastern Time (9 pm Pakistan Time). Our guest speaker is Dr. Arish Qazi, a graduate of FAST Islamabad, 99 batch.
Medical imaging has revolutionized clinical decision making. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and other imaging modalities have enabled clinicians to non-invasively and reliably visualize internal organs, and provide important information about the physiological and pathophysiological changes. This has led to early diagnosis and monitoring, thus enabling a significant improvement in therapeutic output. The increasing amount of medical devices has led to dramatic increases in size and complexity of imaging data. Therefore, computer-aided analysis and processing of medical images has emerged as a vital component of bio-medical research and clinical practice.
This talk will give a brief introduction to the field of medical imaging, followed by examples of applications developed in both academic and industrial settings.
About the speaker:
Dr. Arish Qazi has more than 15 years of industry experience performing medical image analysis and processing research and development both at private companies, as well as in hospital settings. He has conducted pioneering algorithm development work primarily in the context of image registration and image segmentation, and has experience with novel image-guided systems.
His experience includes working with different imaging modalities, such as magnetic resonance (MR), computed tomography (CT), and cone-beam CT imaging and is credited as inventor/co-inventor of 11 granted patents, and has authored over 25 peer reviewed publications.
