Advanced Medical Imaging Tools (AMIT)

Clinical Vocabulary Standards banner image

Advanced Medical Imaging Tools (AMIT) is a collection of projects in CEB which are focused on developing algorithmic techniques to enhance the use of biomedical image, signal, and text data for research and potential clinical applications.   The AMIT projects include work in developing cancer imaging tools, lung x-ray classification, cell classification for malaria identification, and computational techniques for neuroimaging. The following CEB projects are subsets of AMIT:
