Smart Health and Medical Imaging


Smart health and medical imaging are two rapidly evolving fields in healthcare that are transforming the way we diagnose and treat diseases. Smart health is a concept that involves the integration of technology, such as wearables and health monitoring devices, with healthcare delivery systems to provide more personalized and efficient care to patients. On the other hand, medical imaging involves the use of advanced technologies to produce images of the human body, which are then used by healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat diseases. The combination of smart health and medical imaging has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by providing more accurate and timely diagnoses, reducing healthcare costs, and improving patient outcomes. With the advent of machine learning and artificial intelligence, medical imaging is becoming more sophisticated, enabling healthcare professionals to identify and diagnose diseases more accurately and efficiently. This project page aims to explore the latest developments in smart health and medical imaging, as well as their applications in healthcare. We will examine the latest technologies and trends in the field, and their potential impact on patient care. Additionally, we will explore the ethical and social implications of these technologies, and how they can be used to address some of the most pressing healthcare challenges of our time.

Our Solution

Our CVIU Lab focuses on four major technologies for smart health:

1. Facial Expression Techonolgy. We aim to build a robust model to accuratelty identify the micro facial expression.

2. Early Autism Detection We aim to build the AI model to early recognize autism of children.

3. Human Behavior Analysis. We aim to build the AI model that can monitor the human behavior.

4. Neural Cell Analysis. We aim to build the AI model that can monitor the development of neural cells.
