Applied mathematics to the imaging of the human retina
23/04/2015 Thursday 23rd April 2015, 15:00 (Room P3.10, Mathematics Building)
Pedro Serranho, Universidade Aberta
In this talk we will focus on mathematical problems arising in the field of medical imaging and their possible numerical solutions, namely in the imaging of the human retina. We will focus on how mathematical methods (for classification and solving partial differential equations) applied to real medical imaging data can provide additional information and simulations with the potential to be an aid to the early diagnosis of diseases affecting the retina, as for instance diabetes.
