LPI in CASEIB 2019

[10 Dec 2019]

Elena Martín-González has been awarded the prize “José María Ferrero Corral” in the 37th Conference of the Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering (CASEIB2019), held in Santander (Spain) between the 27th and 29th of November, for the communication “Groupwise Deep Learning-based Approach for Motion Compensation. Application to Compressed Sensing 2D Cardiac Cine MRI Reconstruction”.

Prize "Friend of Radiology"

[14 Nov 2019]

The LPI has been awarded the prize "Friend of Radiology" by the Radiological Society of Spain (SERAM). The ceremony in which prizes were given was celebrated on the the "Day of Radiology" in Madrid.

The society awards with this prize those non-radiologists who have a remarkable activity in promoting radiology by any means. In our case, we have steady collaboration with the society to promote ICT in the field of Radiology.

Preprint available: Microstructure Diffusion Scalar Measures from Reduced MRI Acquisitions

[19 Sep 2019]

We propose the so-called "Apparent Measures Using Reduced Acquisitions" (AMURA) to drastically reduce the number of samples needed for the estimation of q-space measures such as RTOP, RTAP and RTPP. AMURA avoids the calculation of the whole EAP by assuming the diffusion anisotropy is roughly independent from the radial direction.

", getting a qualification of "Sobresaliente" and being proposed for "cum laude" distinction.

Un trabajo fin de grado realizado en el LPI consigue un 98% de acierto en el diagnóstico del TDAH

[30 Aug 2019]

El TFG realizado por Patricia Amado Caballero "Ayuda al diagnóstico del TDAH en la infancia mediante técnicas de procesado de señal y aprendizaje" ha dado lugar a un sistema que alcanza un 98% de acierto en el diagnóstico del TDAH. El TFG aplica técnicas de aprendizaje profundo (deep learning) para analizar firmas espectrales en patrones de movimiento. Para adquirir estos patrones se han utilizado pulseras de actividad que no interfieren para nada en la vida diaria del niño.

OpenCLIPER: An OpenCL-Based C++ Framework for Overhead-Reduced Medical Image Processing and Reconstruction on Heterogeneous Devices

OpenCLIPER performance vs. alternatives
[03 Jul 2019]

OpenCLIPER allows us to take advantage of any parallel computing device (CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, DSPs, etc., as long as there is an OpenCL implementation for it), while developing medical imaging methods, but without the burden that OpenCL generally conveys. The work has been published in the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics journal.
