EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging
Our Head of Department, Professor Fiona Gilbert was one of the co-applicants on the EPSRC grant which funded the opening of the new EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging.
In this new age of Big Data, traditional boundaries between applied maths and statistics need to be torn down. This Centre aims to achieve synergies between applied mathematics and statistics through a focus on the analysis of clinical imaging, particularly that arising in neurological, cardiovascular and oncology imaging. Current image analysis is based on techniques such as manual segmentation and technician reading of scans. The methodologies developed in this Centre will look to directly automate many of these steps. This will allow considerably greater flexibility in the types of clinical questions that can be addressed using populations of images. (from the EPSRC website)
