The Center for Computer Vision and Imaging Biomarkers at UCLA was founded to fulfill a research mission recognized as being central to the future of radiology. Computer vision systems will provide automated detection and decision support tools to meet challenges of high volume, complex multimodalities, and low reimbursement by speeding interpretation without sacrificing accuracy. In an era of big data, automated feature extraction will open up possibilities for mining image databases and for new biomarker discovery to personalize treatment.
The CVIB comprises a multidisciplinary team of faculty and staff with depth of knowledge in imaging physics, computer vision, biostatistics and subspecialty clinical radiology. We are motivated by seeing our ideas become technology that actually helps patients. Therefore we embrace industry collaborations involving both image analysis technology transfer and clinical services.
Our mission is to explore and develop novel computer vision algorithms and quantitative imaging biomarkers for use in medical research and clinical applications.
