Title: Image Processing and -Analysis for Biomedical Applications


Image data originating from various applications in the natural and life sciences often requires dedicated processing and analysis.

In this talk, two projects are presented which illustrate current challenges in image processing for biomedical applications. The first project addresses the automated analysis of microscopy images showing cell populations, which requires cell segmentation, tracking and classification. The second project introduces automated methods to support dementia diagnosis, which comprises novel computational tools for accurately and robustly extracting and analyzing functional and anatomical biomarkers and their diagnostic performance.

These projects illustrate current challenges in image processing resulting from technological advances such as high-throughput image acquisition, multimodal image generation and new imaging devices.


Dorit Merhof received her Diploma in computer science (2003) and her PhD degree in biomedical image analysis (2007) from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. After two years with Siemens Molecular Imaging, Oxford, UK, she joined the University of Konstanz, Germany, as an assistant professor for Visual Computing. Since 2013, she is full professor at the Institute of Imaging & Computer Vision at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. Her research interests include acquisition, processing and visualization of image data originating from various biomedical and industrial applications.

Colloquium coordinators are Prof.dr. M. Aiello (e-mail : ) and
