Quantitative image analysis (QIA) goes beyond subjective visual assessment to provide computer measurements of the image content, typically following image segmentation to identify anatomical regions of interest (ROIs). Commercially available picture archiving and communication systems focus on storage of image data. They are not well suited to efficient(More)
Computer tomography (CT) imaging plays an important role in cancer detection and quantitative assessment in clinical trials. High-resolution imaging studies on large cohorts of patients generate vast data sets, which are infeasible to analyze through manual interpretation. In this article we describe a comprehensive architecture for computer-aided detection(More)
Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) is a severe pest of the eastern hemlock (Tsugae canadensis) and Carolina hemlock (Tsuga caroliniana). There is no reported resistance at any life cycle stage for either tree species. Eliminating pests from hemlock requires application of treatments to individual trees; therefore, many forest managers have not(More)
Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) technology is becoming an important tool to assess treatment response in clinical trials. However, CAD software alone is not sufficient to conduct an imaging-based clinical trial. There are a number of architectural requirements such as image receive (from multiple field sites), a database for storing quantitative measures,(More)
