From the series: Introduction to Medical Image Processing Using MATLAB
Brett Shoelson, MathWorks
In this webinar we will explore approaches to analyzing a series of noisy, heterogeneous microscopic blood-smear images to quantify parasitic infection. Then we will use techniques from computer vision and machine learning and automatically recognize the type of parasite in the image set.
The presentation will be particularly valuable for anyone interested in using MATLAB to process, visualize, and quantify biomedical imagery. Rather than focus on extracting information from a few homogeneous images, we will introduce a typical real-world challenge, and discuss approaches to managing and exploring collections of widely heterogeneous images. We will describe user interfaces that simplify the exploration and algorithm development processes, and demonstrate their utility in identifying and quantifying scientific or clinically relevant insights.
We will then focus on the extraction of features from images, and the use of machine learning algorithms to classify images based on their content.
In this presentation, we will:
