Imaging data

Nowadays, imaging data is omnipresent in health care and life sciences. They are used to support diagnosis and therapy, but also to derive novel insights into the inner workings of cells and their interactions. The demand for quantitative measurements in these complex and heterogeneous imaging data sets is therefore rapidly expanding. My scientific discipline is a part of computer science, and aims to develop novel computer methods that can automatically extract relevant measurements from biomedical imaging data. Main challenge is to make the translation between what is required in clinical practice and life-sciences on the one hand, and the recent technological developments on the other hand. How do you teach a computer “to see with the prior experience of a human, and with the accuracy of a machine?”
