Title : Importance of Computer Vision in Disease Diagnosis and Planning
In this presentation, the role of computer vision in healthcare sector will be presented. Computer Vision (CV) simply means: what a computer perceives looking at the image. Visualization is crucial in disease diagnosis; a poor diagnosis may be resulted due to poor visualization followed by poor interpretation. Although a digital device, computer, is used to visualize the medical images (such as CT, US, MRI, PET, SPECT, etc.), robust computer vision algorithms are still needed because of several challenges such as noise, unavailability of high resolution medical images, inadequate data for research to name a few. Importantly, despite having some state-of-the-art algorithms their real-time implementation lacks. Thus, computer vision is still considered as a hot area of research. A few future research perspectives will also be discussed. Finally, some computer vision research projects will be discussed.
