Guang Lin's talk at Purdue Faculty Entrepreneurial Learning Academy
04-15-2022Machine learning techniques enable high-frequency 4D Cardiac Ultrasound with higher accuracy
Lin gave a talk on an innovative machine learning-driven contouring system for high-frequency, four-dimensional cardiac ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging at Purdue Faculty Entrepreneurial Learning Academy on April 8th, 2022.
This innovative technology is incubated through Purdue Data Science Consulting service with the close collaboration between Professor Guang Lin and Prof. Craig Goergen. and the Trask Innovation award awarded to Professor Guang Lin and Prof. Craig Goergen. Lin is a professor of mathematics and mechanical engineering. Goergen is the Leslie A. Geddes Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
The contouring system could be used by biomedical researchers using cardiac ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging systems. It improves upon traditional methods to identify boundaries within image data.
Compared to manual techniques that can take up to an hour to process, large data sets from hundreds of timepoints and thousands of locations can be processed within seconds. Developing the innovative system requires building a larger image repository of a variety of diseases and continuing to improve the machine learning algorithms.
