Ongoing Medical Imaging Projects at Laimbio URJC


Friday, October 28, 2016, 4:00pm to 6:00pm


RCC Main Seminar Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge MA

RCC is pleased to announce this talk, organized by RCC Fellow Ángel Torrado-Carvajal, PhD, Research Fellow at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and featuring Prof. Norberto Malpica, PhD, Associate Professor, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos; Director, Medical Image Analysis and Biometry Lab; Associate Director, Madrid-MIT M+Visión Consortium.

In this talk, Prof. Norberto will explain several ongoing image acquisition and processing projects at the Medical Image Analysis and Biometry Lab (Laimbio), URJC. Laimbio is part of the Madri+d Network and specializes in quantitative medical imaging technologies, and serves image analysis tools to many clinical and research centers while developing new medical imaging acquisition and analysis methods. 

Prof. Norberto has been actively participating in helping to catalyse the biomedical technology innovation ecosystem in Madrid by creating different programs together with the Boston biomedical technology community (MIT-Harvard). These programs have led to a real fusion of the academia, healthcare and business sectors to develop high-impact translational projects in healthcare technology. He will describe projects focused on personalized control of ultra-high field MRI acquisition to avoid possible unsafe heating, placental transport characterization for better detecting insufficient placenta via MRI, creation of optimized and simpler optical cytometers, or development of deep learning algorithms for multiple sclerosis diagnosis, among others.
