Event: Medical Image Retrieval

Image retrieval systems in the medical domain support doctors in their decision making, by taking a query image or a region within such a query image as input and finding the most similar images/regions in vast databases. We will be looking at state of the art approches to build such systems, using deep learning for feature extraction and indexing.


With a background in electrical engineering René has worked for 8 years at the Medical University Vienna as a researcher in computer vision, focussing on anatomical structure localization and content based image retrieval. He is now CTO at contextflow, applying deep learning to large scale medical image data and developing smart tools to aid radiologists in their challenging tasks.
