Department of Computer Science and Engineering organizes CSIR Sponsored Two Days National Seminar on Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis – Challenges and Future on 29th and 30th April 2019.
Deep learning algorithms have the potential to be invested deeply in all fields of medicine, from drug discovery to clinical decision making, significantly altering the way medicine is practiced. The success of deep learning algorithms in recent years comes at an opportune time when medical records are increasingly digitalized. Medical images are an integral part of a patient’s electronic health records and are currently analysed by human radiologists, who are limited by speed, fatigue, and experience. It takes years and great financial cost to train a qualified radiologist, and some health-care systems outsource radiology reporting to lower-cost countries such as India via tele-radiology. A delayed or erroneous diagnosis causes harm to the patient. Therefore, it is ideal for medical image analysis to be carried out by an automated, accurate and efficient deep learning algorithm.
This seminar will focus on how Deep Learning can be utilized for addressing some important problems in medical image analysis.
