Invited Talk by Prof. Nicholas Ayache: From Medical Images to Personalized Digital Physiological Patients.


During the past decades, medical images have become increasingly more complex, and their automated analysis has required the development of innovative ever more sophisticated computational models. I will briefly describe this evolution, from the early geometrical models to the most recent statistical, biophysical and even functional multi-scale models of patient's anatomy and physiology. The talk will be illustrated, on several clinical topics including neuro-radiology, neuro-oncology, interventional cardiology, orthopedics and digestive microendoscopy, by recent advances obtained by our research team with academic, clinical and industrial partners.

Short Bio

Nicholas Ayache is a Research Director at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France, where he leads the Asclepios research team. He received his Ph.D in 1983, and his "Thèse d'Etat" in 1988 from Univ. of Paris XI (Computer Science), introducing new vision capabilities for autonomous robots. Since 1988, N. Ayache's research activities are dedicated to Computational Medical Image Analysis and Simulation to better assist medical diagnosis and therapy. His research interests include the design of novel geometrical, statistical, physical and functional models for image analysis, surgery simulation and image-guided therapy. He is the author of over 350 peer-reviewed scientific articles in these domains, the author or editor of 8 books, and the co-founder of 4 start-up companies in computer vision, computer graphics, medical and biological imaging. N. Ayache is co-Editor in Chief (and co-founder) of the Medical Image Analysis journal (Elsevier), and associate editor of several scientific journals including IEEE Trans. Med. Imaging. He has been involved in the organization of several major and pioneering conferences in the field including MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Comp. Assist. Intervention). N. Ayache received prestigious awards, including the EADS Grand Prize awarded by the French Academy of Sciences in 2006 and the Microsoft Award for Science in Europe, awarded jointly by the UK Royal Society and the French Academy of Sciences in 2008.
