Visualization: Uncertainty Visualization
This project targets the area of uncertainty analysis in medical imaging. While there is a steady and fast pace of technological advances in diagnostic radiology in general, the area of uncertainty analysis is underdeveloped despite clear needs.
Uncertainties are introduced and propagated throughout the medical imaging pipeline, for instance in the image acquisition, pre-processing, and rendering stages. In clinical practice today, the physician performs uncertainty analysis almost entirely without assistance from the visualization system. This can be problematic for diagnostically challenging cases, both in terms of diagnostic accuracy and work efficiency.
