CIAPS Seminar Series: Weiying Dai on "Dynamic functional brain imaging in early diagnosis and treatment therapy"

Day Thursday, November 07
Time 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Where

The Center for Imaging, Acoustics and Perception Science (CIAPS) seminar series presents Assistant Professor of Computer Science Weiying Dai who will give an invited talk at noon Thursday, Nov. 7, in EB-G11 on the second floor. The title of his talk will be "Dynamic functional brain imaging in early diagnosis and treatment therapy." All are welcome. Encourage students to attend. Light lunch (pizza) will be served. Imaging provides the primary means for assessing brain structure and function in humans in vivo. For many clinical situations, brain imaging biomarkers have the potential to provide greater sensitivity and specificity than clinical indices for differential diagnosis and management of brain disorders. While structural changes have shown to provide valuable information to disease diagnosis, changes in regional brain function may be more dynamic and provide an even greater sensitivity to early diagnosis, disease progression or response to therapy. However, the potential of functional imaging has not yet been realized because of some technical hurdles and lack of effective image processing tools to detect disease-sensitive imaging biomarkers. The talk will focus on the recent development of dynamic functional imaging and its impact on neuroscience and clinical applications. Development of new computational methods on brain functional imaging and applications of the computational methods towards the sensitive biomarkers are in need for medical image processing. Recent advancement in the computational methods in diabetes and bipolar disorder will be presented.
