Image-Based Biomedical Modeling (IBBM)

Prof. Dr. Bjoern Menze


The research objective of the Image-Based Biomedical Modeling group is to develop computational algorithms at the interface of

  • image-based modeling
  • computational physiology
  • medical computer vision.

The work strives towards transforming the descriptive interpretation of biomedical images into a model-driven analysis that infers properties of the underlying disease process by using statistical, physiological, and biophysical models. A related effort is the application of such models to big clinical data bases in order to learn about correlations between model features and disease patterns at a population scale. In this, the current focus is on applications in clinical neuroimaging and oncological staging.
