  • LOGISMOS Image Segmentation

    LOGISMOS segmentation framework (Layered Optimal Graph Image Segmentation for Multiple Objects and Surfaces) facilitates highly efficient multi-dimensional, multi-layered, and multi-object optimum graph-based segmentation and surface editing on image data from various modalities (CT, MR, Ultrasound, OCT, etc.).

  • Cardiovascular Image Analysis

    Cardiac and cardiovascular image analysis has been performed at IIBI since the early 1990's, from X-ray coronary angiography, 2D/3D/4D ultrasound (including intravascular), MR/CT, and OCT, leading to established and validated software for various clinical questions and applications (coronary artery disease, aortic atherosclerosis, arrhythmia, heart transplant, etc.).

  • Pulmonary Image Analysis

    Development of novel imaging protocols for and image-related analysis approaches to assessing pulmonary morphology and function in normal lungs and various lung diseases is one of IIBI's strongest focus areas, going back 30+ years of research activity in various laboratories.

  • Ophthalmic Image Analysis

    Current IIBI research investigates the pathology of many eye diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, macular edema, central serous choroidopathy, and of the optic disc, combining state of the art imaging modalities like optical coherence tomography with our well-established segmentation approaches.

  • Orthopedic Image Analysis

    Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis image analysis research is yet another focus area of IIBI. Architecture and biomechanics of osteoporotic bone, cartilage morphometrics, and overall orthopedic biomechanics are studies from a variety of imaging modalitries, including MR, CT, and ultrasound.

  • Neurologic Image Analysis

    Quantitative analysis of brain structure and function, researching the brain connectome, and developing new approaches to early diagnosis of neurological disorders in children and adults is another area of IIBI's interest and expertise with a long history of research activity.

  • Cancer Image Analysis

    Image analysis for cancer-related quantitative analysis and radiation oncology treatment applications belong to one of the core areas of IIBI expertise. We have established and validated software for tumor segmentation from PET, CT, MR, PET/CT, PET/MR, and MVCBCT, We have also developed methods for tumor treatment outcome prediction, optimality-guaranteeing algorithms for intensity-modulated radiotehrapy, and developed a barrage of cancer-related bioinformatics support approaches.
