Session descriptions

1. Introduction to Medical Informatics (9:15-9:45am Dr. Daniela Raicu)
 

Description: Biomedical Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of medical information. In this talk we will introduce the main concepts and fields of medical informatics, the courses and research labs from CDM that are relevant to medical informatics, and what kind of jobs people in medical informatics have.
 

2. Medical Informatics Research at CDM (9:45-10:45am Dr. Jacob Furst)
 

Description: Computer science can be a valuable tool for practicing medicine. In particular, applications of computer aided diagnosis and detection provide assistance to medical practitioners that can increase reliability and efficiency, and decrease the rate of false positives without subsequently increasing the rate of false negatives. We will discuss some of the projects that we have been involved with in the area of medical informatics we will motivate the medical problems, describe how algorithmic ideas like image processing and computer learning are applicable, and discuss our own results.
 

3. The MedIX Program at DePaul University and University of Chicago (11:00-11:30am Dr. Daniela Raicu)
 

Description: The Medical Informatics lab has a well-known tradition of hosting undergraduate research during the academic year and the summer through funded opportunities by CDM, DePaul and NSF. We will describe our NSF REU program and present statistics on student success over 2005-2010.
 

4. Hands-on experience with medical images (12-12:50pm Dmitriy Zinovev)
 

Description: A Matlab tutorial on how to process medical images and identify tumors will be offered in CDM801 lab. Student will visualize Computed Tomography images of the chest and look for lung nodules in a publically available dataset provided by NIH. Students will learn how to read and write these images in Matlab, learn about pixel data and how it can be connected to the lung nodule interpretation.
