My current research interests involve Medical Imaging,
particularly PET and MRI. Much of this work is done as a collaboration
between the Physics Department and the Clinical School,
especially the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre.
One major project I am working on is the
construction of a combined PET and MRI scanner. This system will
for the first time allow simultaneous imaging with both modalities. A recent poster also gives further
I am interested in using GPUs
for fast medical image processing.
Together with Audrunas Gruslys we have
developed Ezys which performs fast
and accurate affine and elastic 3D registration on typical MR image data.
Currently Ezys uses NVIDIA GPUs and CUDA. Minimum GPU requirements are compute 2.0
and ~1.5 GB of video ram.
example also using CUDA is here AIRWC - Accelerated Image Registration
