Research Summary

Dr. Staib's research centers on techniques for accurate analysis, quantification and clinical characterization of medical images including diagnosis, prognosis and treatment decision support. Current medical imaging modalities can reveal rich information about structure and function in three dimensions and in vivo. However, in order to extract measures that are meaningful for scientific or clinical purposes, it is necessary to have quantitative methods of medical image analysis that are robust in the presence of noise, acquisition variation, etc.

Dr. Staib is developing methods for the measurement and characterization of images using machine learning and model-based approaches.
