Image processing and its application in medical field

Image processing has lot of application in wellness of human being
from diagnosis of a disease to the therapy stage. There are wide
variety of the modalities employed in the hospitals like CT, MRI, PET
and US based on the clinical task. This presentation covers the
details from the tissues to the pixel intensities starting from image
acquisition to post processing. The journey covers the physics to
imaging of the tissues, the patient coordinate system, different
patient positions, the image acquisition with standard protocols and
slicing the 3D anatomy etc. Segmentation of the desired volume of
interest is a tough task in medical image post processing and the
accuracy of the segmentation results is still an open issue. The
second half covers, the 3D object segmentation, visualization using 2D
MPR and 3D volume rendering techniques and finally the quantitative
and qualitative validation of segmented objects. The greediness of the
human doesn’t end with only patient scan, also extends beyond. Some of
the beautiful pictures of the scan of flowers, aquatic animals and the
rare cases of Siamese twins will be shown.

Manjunath K N received the B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering from Visveswaraya
Technological University, India in 2002, the M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering in 2005
and the PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal, India in 2017.
He is currently a Faculty in Computer Science and Engineering at MIT, Manipal. He held research and software
development positions as Consultant with Computed Tomography and Radiation Oncology solutions, SIEMENS Healthineers, Bengaluru, India from 2005-2013. He has published 15 research articles,
a book chapter and has filed three invention disclosures in SIEMENS AG and a patent application filed in India. He was the recipient of early career researcher travel grant from Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation, Germany and Carl Storm underrepresented minority fellowship from National Institute of Health, USA. His current research includes, Medical Image processing, Treatment Planning Systems in Radiation Oncology workflow, Cancer diagnosis using medical imaging modalities, Software design, Agile Methodologies and Elevating research prototypes to medical software product. He is a Life Member of the Biomedical Engineering Society of India, and Senior Member of IEEE.
