The Intelligent Medical Imaging China (iMED China) group at Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering, is part of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The group was established by Professor Jimmy Liu in 14-Mar-2016.
iMED China dedicates on the development of novel image analysis methods and tools in the areas of medical imaging, and their applications to various clinical research and trials. The main objective of iMED China is to contribute to develop technologies of advanced screening, diagnostics, interventional guidance and therapy planning of eye and brain diseases. The developed methods include multiple areas of medical image analysis, such as segmentation, registration, detection, statistical modelling and pattern recognition.
iMED China hosts several individual teams, and focus on different research aspects. These teams are led by distinguished young scholars who were gathered from all over the world. Currently, the member of iMED China includes research fellows, PhD and master students, and scientific software engineers. We aim to form a cross-disciplinary team of computer scientists, clinicians, biomedical engineers, mechanical engineers, and mathematicians. iMED China participates a number of national and international research projects, and establishes corporations with several academic institutions, companies, and clinical centres. These will achieve transformational impact on healthcare through multidisciplinary collaboration. We believe that iMED China will be a world-leading platform for the development of biomedical engineering.
