—Growing long-term cost of managing an onsite medical imaging archive has been a subject which the health care industry struggles with. Based on the current trend, it is estimated that over 1 billion diagnostic imaging procedures will be performed in the United States during year 2014, generating about 100 Petabytes of data. The high volume of medical(More)
The success of radiation therapy depends critically on accurately delineating the target volume, which is the region of known or suspected disease in a patient. Methods that can compute a contour set defining a target volume on a set of patient images will contribute greatly to the success of radiation therapy and dramatically reduce the workload of(More)
The success of radiation therapy depends critically on accurately delineating the target volume, which is the region of known or suspected disease in a patient. Methods that can compute a contour set defining a target volume on a set of patient's biomedical images will contribute greatly to the success of radiation therapy and drastically reduce the(More)
As mobile devices have become more powerful and pervasive, mobile computing has become more important. As the market share of mobile operating systems steadily grows and more IT applications are developed and deployed on mobile devices, this will become a larger and increasing part of professional IT practice. Consequently IT students should gain experience(More)

As we develop radiation treatment planning systems for head and neck cancer patients, there is a need to identify reference patients whose anatomical structures share similar features. By finding previously treated patients or prototypical models with the most similar anatomy in the head and neck region, our prototype system can do a better job of(More)
Craniosynostosis is a congenital disease which consists of premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures, resulting in an abnormal head shape. Patients are usually treated by cranial vault expansion surgery to minimize the potential for brain damage. Full thickness cranial defects result from the expansion surgery, with the size directly proportional to(More)
BACKGROUND The gold standard for mapping nerve fiber orientation in white matter of the human brain is histological analysis through biopsy. Such mappings are a crucial step in validating non-invasive techniques for assessing nerve fiber orientation in the human brain by using diffusion MRI. However, the manual extraction of nerve fiber directions of(More)
