New patent awarded to CCIPD
Saturday, August 27, 2016 - 16:03

CCIPD awarded new US patent (9,424,460) on methods, apparatus, and other embodiments associated with predicting prostate cancer (CaP) progression using tumor cell morphology features and benign region graph features

 
Inventors: Anant Madabhushi, George Lee, Sahir Ali
 

Methods, apparatus, and other embodiments associated with predicting prostate cancer (CaP) progression using tumor cell morphology features and benign region graph features are described. One example apparatus includes a set of logics that acquires an image of a region of tissue, detects and segments cells in the image, extracts a set of morphological features from cells in a first region in the image, constructs a graph of a localized cellular network in a second region of the image, extracts a set of graph features from the graph, generates a set of tumor plus adjacent features signature (TABS) features from the sets of graph features and the set of morphological features, and calculates the probability that the image is a progressor or non-progressor based, at least in part, on the set of TABS features. The first region may concern cancerous cells and the second region may concern benign cells.

Congratulations to the Tiwari group and the BrIC lab
Monday, March 21, 2016 - 13:16

Wishing Dr. Tiwari all the possible success as she launches her own lab - BrIC 

(Brain Image Computing) within the Case School of Medicine.

Dr. Pallavi Tiwari has just begun as an assistant professor in the dept of biomedical engineering and will continue to focus on research relating to neuroimage informatics projects as she has been doing for the last 3 years.

Dr. Tiwari will soon be moving over to the Wolstein research building which is where the BrIC lab will be based and she will be accompanied by Prateek, Jhimli, and Niha.
