Diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients relies heavily on the interpretation of plain CT brain scans. Important image features and signs of pathology can be difficult to see in these scans, and fast interpretation is essential in a clinical setting. To improve the performance of stroke physicians, Brainomix has developed e-ASPECTS, an automated CT scan assessment tool based on state of the art image registration and machine learning techniques. This seminar will focus on how algorithm research can be transferred to clinical practice, and the challenges of working with real-world medical imaging data.
Eric is the CTO of Brainomix Ltd, a start-up of the University of Oxford. He received his M.Eng. in Engineering from Cambridge University, specialising in computer vision, and subsequently worked at OMG (Oxford Metrics Group), a computer vision company based in Oxford. During this time, he worked for the OMG subsidiary Yotta Ltd, developing algorithms for street-view scene understanding and object detection, and then for 2d3 Ltd, developing video processing and bundle adjustment algorithms for UAV imagery. He has since worked on a wide variety of computer vision and image processing projects, for companies such as Microsoft Research, Metail (a Cambridge-based fashion tech startup), and Canva (a Sydney-based graphic design startup).
