Medical image processing is essential for clinical diagnosis by providing quantitative visualization and analysis of underlying anatomy. Typically, medical image processing is done with statistical modeling which may not be sufficient to describe the complex variation of underlying anatomy. To tackle this challenge, I unlock the valuable prior knowledge from large image databases via machine learning techniques and use it to improve medical image processing. In this talk, I will present how machine learning can help medical image processing such as disease classification, CT reconstruction, and microscopy imaging.
