San Francesco - Sagrestia
Continuous progress achieved in medical imaging technology in the past decades has lead to considerable improvement in patient care, but also increased the need for automated tools to analyze and interpret the growing amount of medical data acquired. In an attempt to answer this need, we carry out collaborative research efforts aimed at the adaptation and development of novel technologies for the analysis of medical images. Accordingly, this talk will summarize our ongoing research efforts focused on the human brain. In the first part of the talk we will explore automated analysis of structural brain MR images for dementia. Then in the second part we will introduce preliminary outputs of our ongoing research activity on the analysis of dendritic spines. We will conclude the talk by some open problems and future directions.
