Summary of Keynote Speech

Image registration is an important and a fundamental task in computer vision and image processing field. For example, to make a surgical plan for head operation, the surgeons should gain more detailed information from CT angiography (CTA) and MR angiography (MRA) images. And the abnormalities can be easily detected from the fusion image which is obtained from two different modalities. One of the multiple modal image registration methods is matching the CTA and MRA, by which the image of head vascular could be enhanced. In general, the procedure for fusion is completed manually. It is time-consuming and subjective. Particularly the anatomical knowledge is required as well. Therefore, the development of automatic registration methods is expected in medical fields. We propose a new automatic image registration technique for image fusion of head CT (Computed Tomography) and MR (Magnetic resonance) images. In experiments, we performed our proposed method for registration on five sets of CTA and MRA images and a better result from our previous method is obtained.

About the Speaker

Hyoungseop Kim received his B.A. degree in electrical engineering from Kyushu Institute of Technology in 1994, the Masters and Ph.D. degree from Kyushu Institute of Technology in 1996 and 2001, respectively. He is a professor in the department of control engineering at Kyushu Institute of Technology. His research interests are focused on medical application of image analysis. He is currently working on automatic segmentation of multi-organ of abdominal CT image, non-rigid image registration for head CT and MRI, and temporal subtraction of thoracic MDCT image sets.
