4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference @ Brook Street Hotel
May 8 @ 09:00 – 15:00
4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference @ Brook Street Hotel | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

Innovation enables organizations to open new avenues of product differentiation by customizing products. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, engineers must innovate quickly to incorporate new features while reducing development costs and delivering new products to the market before the competition. Simulation plays a key role in helping engineers drive innovation, enabling complete virtual prototypes of complex systems to be validated across all physics and engineering disciplines.

Join us as we return to Ottawa for our 4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference on May 8, 2019! This one-day conference will provide detailed insight into how leading companies are utilizing simulation to advance their product development. We will bring together ANSYS users, partners, developers, and industry experts for networking, learning, and sharing of new ideas.

Application of
Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis

11:30 – 13:30

—————————————————————-

Medical imaging, (e.g., computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), mammography, ultrasound,
X-ray) has advanced at a rapid speed over last decades. Currently, the medical
image interpretation is mostly performed by human experts, which is a tedious
task and subject to high inter-operator variability. Deep learning is providing
exciting solutions for medical image analysis problems. Recent advances in deep
learning have helped to identify, classify, and quantify patterns in medical
images. In this seminar, we introduce the principles and methods of deep
learning concepts, particularly convolutional neural network (CNN). We show how
CNN operates. I will describe several interesting applications of deep learning
for medical image analysis, including my recent works on segmenting myocardial
scar (injured) tissue in the heart, prostate tumor detection, and kidney lesion
localization in 3D MRI and CT images.

Biography

Fatemeh Zabihollahy is currently
a Ph.D. candidate at Carleton University. She obtained her MASc (2016) and BASc
(2001) both in Biomedical Engineering from Carleton University, Canada and
Shahid Beheshti University, Iran, respectively. She worked in the medical
devices industry as an R&D engineer for ten years. Her research interest is
in the field of application of deep learning techniques for medical image
analysis.
