Research Group Medical Image Analysis & Data Modeling


Technological advances and the ongoing digitalization in healthcare are driving the systematic collection of medical data ever further. This data offers the opportunity to better understand diseases, support clinical decision making with evidence, and optimize medical processes.

Biomedical imaging is among the primary sources of information for many clinical applications and scientific endeavors. Its data-intensive nature necessitates dedicated algorithmic methods to process the images and uncover the information hidden within.

In addition to imaging data, a myriad of clinically relevant parameters is collected on patients, to monitor their health status, to describe pathologies, or to document physiological boundary conditions. Modeling of medical data using e.g., statistical models and inference enables disease prediction and increases understanding of pathomechanisms. Such data-based models are desired to be interpretable to serve as evidence-based tools in clinical practice.

The research group covers the whole range of medical data handling: from data acquisition to data processing and modeling. The goal of the group’s applied research is to translate data-based methods into clinical practice to the benefit of medical staff and ultimately patients.



The research group has expertise and experience in:

  • Biomedical imaging: magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, histological imaging
  • Computer vision: image processing & analysis
  • Machine learning & deep learning
  • Bayesian inference & modeling
  • Integration of domain knowledge: medical expertise, crowdsourcing of expert knowledge
