Ms. Guolan Lu, PhD Candidate at QBIL, won the Outstanding Translational Research Award at Georgia Tech

This Outstanding Translational Research Award honors a graduate student who has demonstrated excellence in translational research as demonstrated by publications in translation-focused journals, patents, clinical testing, achieving FDA clearance, etc. Guolan’s research work on hyperspectral imaging demonstrated highly translational potential from animals and human patients for cancer detection and image-guided surgery. This is a prestigious award among more than 150 PhD students in the top-ranked Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology. – April 2016

Dr. Baowei Fei and Dr. Xulei Qin at QBIL were granted a U.S. patent on cardiac imaging

Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media relate to segmenting an image series of at least one image of a region of interest of a subject. The methods, systems, and computer readable storage media can automatically segment interior and exterior boundaries relative to the region of interest (e.g., epicardial and endocardial boundaries with respect to a right ventricle) from an image series by combining sparse matrix transform, a training model, and a localized region based level set function. – April 2016

Dr. Baowei Fei will serve as Conference Chair for SPIE Medical Imaging

Dr. Fei will serve as the Conference Chair for the International Conference of SPIE Medical Imaging – Image-Guided Procedures, Robotics Interventions, and Modeling from 2017-2020. SPIE is an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach to the science and application of light. Established in 1955, the not-for-profit society advances emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth. The SPIE Medical Imaging Conference is the internationally recognized premier forum for reporting state-of-the-art research and development in medical imaging. The event focuses on the latest innovations found in underlying fundamental scientific principles, to technology developments, scientific evaluation, and clinical application. In 2017, the conference will offer a special track on Precision Medicine. The symposium covers the full range of medical imaging modalities including medical image acquisition, display, processing, analysis, perception, decision support, and informatics.
