The research interests of the Kenji Suzuki Laboratory in Medical Imaging Research Center at Illinois Institute of Technology lie in interdisciplinary research in computer science and medicine, with its primary focus on research on computer-aided diagnosis of lesions in medical images and the development of techniques of machine learning in medical imaging, and medical image processing and analysis.  The long-term goal of the laboratory's research is to develop a computer system that diagnoses diseases in medical images as an expert radiologist does to assist non-expert doctors in making diagnoses.  To approach this goal, we believe that the development of sophisticated techniques, their theoretical backups, and an understanding of radiologists' decision-making process and of the human visual system are essential.  We are making efforts to "weave" the technological science and the clinical science into a new paradigm to contribute to both computer science/engineering and medicine.
