Computer Aided Diagnostic System for Cardiovascular Disease

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Computing


My current PhD research topic is focused on creating a decision support system for radiologists that can facilitate the diagnostic process without the need for labeled data. Our aim is to use past radiological exams (in various modalities, including X-rays and MRI) and their corresponding reports (created by clinicians as part of the normal protocol within a hospital)and develop a learning framework that can learn the correspondence between the image regions and parts of the report and be able to automate the process of generating these reports.

Description Computer aided diagnostic system that can auto-generated radiological reports for chest x-ray images
Exploitation Route The system to auto-generate reports for chest X-ray images can be taken further and improved by, for instance, being used by radiologists as part of a validation study where they incorporate it into their work-flow and report error/issues on the fly so that the algorithm can be improved (as part of a manual adjustment process, or in an automated way whereby the model can continuously update when it is corrected by a radiologist).
