Image analysis is the extraction of meaningful information from images. This can yield vast quantities of additional data.
Edinburgh Imaging and CRF Edinburgh have a large Image Analysis Group working at both The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and Western General Hospital sites.
Image analysis can be performed both by human readers and using semi- and fully-automated computational techniques.
We currently have expertise in texture analysis and description, analysis of structural imaging data including data registration, region of interest analysis, and voxel level analysis using both univariate and multivariate (machine learning) approaches.
Some of our image analysis tools are available for download, further information is available on the Edinburgh Imaging Analysis Wiki:
We are available to train researchers and investigators in the use of specialised techniques, participate in the scientific work of research projects, and develop new image processing and analysis methods.
Our Systematic Management, Archiving and Reviewing of Trial Images Service (SMARTIS) offers a first class global service, from acquiring, collating and cataloguing medical imaging data, right through to analysing that data.
