WORLDCOMP'10 Tutorial: Dr. Akash Kumar Singh

Last modified 2010-06-22 18:28

Advancement in Brain Imaging
Dr. Akash Kumar Singh
IBM, Advisory IT Architect, California, USA

Date: July 12, 2010
Time: 6:00-9:00 PM
Location: Copper Room


    In the recent past we have seen major research and development in Brain Imaging which helped healthcare providers and surgeons to provide better care to patient and accurate diagnosis and define precise prognosis of disease. Still we have many challenges in designing Systems Architecture and Surgery Models. In this workshop we will discuss about the problems at hand in the area of Brain Image Segmentation, Registration, Brain maps, Computational Complexity and Brain Connectivity.


    We will explore more into Imaging Modalities like Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed Tomography, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Positron Emission Tomography and Algorithm design and Surgery model & Brain Visualization, Application of this tutorial will be on Image Guided Neurosurgery, Robotics Guidance for Surgery and Visualization.

    Key Learning:
      • Learn various imaging modalities available for Brain Imaging
      • Understand tools, techniques and methods for Analysis of Brain Imaging
      • Algorithm Design in the area of Brain Image Segmentation, Brain Image Registration, and Image Guided Neurosurgery
      • Architecture Design of Brain Imaging


    Engineer, Students, Business Analyst.


    Dr Akash Singh is having expertise in Computational Algorithms and Enterprise Architecture; currently he is with IBM as Advisory IT Architect.
