Machine learning in medical image computing.

Medical image computing, powered by machine learning, started to yield algorithmic solutions for interpreting radiological images that can perform as well as experts in a number of tasks. In this talk, I will first discuss the need for algorithmic solutions for interpreting medical images and extracting clinically relevant information. Specifically, I will argue that we need algorithms to help human experts overcome the increasing work-load in the clinics and improve accuracy. Then I will talk about the advances the field of medical image computing has made over the last two decades to this end. Despite the advances, there still remains a number of critical tasks where algorithms’ performance is far from human quality. I will discuss some such tasks and conclude with an outlook for the future and the potential role we can algorithms to play.
