Two abstracts accepted to IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) ’15

BMIPL will present two abstracts as posters at the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), New York, USA. Minh Phuong Nguyen, 1st year MS student, contributed to one of them as the first author.

The first abstract, “A New Non-Local Means Filter with CT Side Information for SPECT”, proposed a new filtering method for SPECT image denoising using CT side information and showed improved performance using bias-variance analysis. This is authored by Minh Phuong Nguyen (1st year master’s student at UNIST) and Se Young Chun and will be presented at the Poster Session “Image Filtering – Poster – Abstract” on April 16, 2015, 14:40-16:10.

The second abstract. “Importance of Image Registration for Quantitative SPECT Imaging”, discussed the effect of misregistration between SPECT and CT on the image quality of SPECT. In clinics, CT is used for attenuation correction of SPECT and delineation of tumors for quantitation. Using simulations, we evaluated quantitatively that slight misregistration between two modalities degraded image quality and showed that simple registration is quite helpful to improve quantitative image quality. This is authored by Se Young Chun and will be presented at the Poster Session “Image Registration & Segmentation – Poster – Abstract” on April 19, 2015, 08:15-09:50.
