Medical imaging is making major strides into current medical diagnosis and therapy. According to one market report, “the fastest growing category of the imaging market consists not of imaging equipment, but of computer systems that are used as adjuncts to imaging equipment.” Our current research interests focus on standards for data collection and analysis across an array of different commercial imaging platforms including associated metadata; feature extraction tools for various imaging modalities, including CT scans, MRI, wireless capsule endoscopy; software methods for measurement of change in computed extracted features such as tumor volume or other anatomical, functional, or metabolic metrics; physical performance standards and related image quality standards particularly for qualifying image attributes for measuring change; and semantic interoperability standards for ensuring standard image rendering, related meta data, data storage, and retrieval.
