Traumatic Brain Injury Research at UVA

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a neurological disorder that affects more than a million Americans. Additionally, TBI in the combat environment is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in recent armed conflicts. However, TBI is very difficult to diagnose and, therefore, to treat. UVA's own Dr. James R. Stone is actively working to improve the clinical diagnosis of this disease process by creating an image library of three thousand healthy adults to serve as a reference when diagnosing TBI. Dr. Stone is Vice Chairman of Clinical Research and Associate Professor of Radiology and Medical … [Read more...]

Lecture: Task-Based Statistical Approach for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

On October 31st, UVA Medical Imaging Research is hosting Subok Park, PhD, from the FDA, who will present a lecture on tasked-based optimization of medical imaging systems for signal detection with application to digital breast tomosynthesis. Task-Based Statistical Approach A task-based statistical approach has been increasingly used to optimize imaging systems for clinically relevant tasks including signal detection. One of the many advantages of this approach is that rigorous and comprehensive in-silico imaging trials can be conducted to optimize the system before patients are exposed to … [Read more...]
