Research Interests

Dr. Hamarneh is working on developing techniques for the automated processing and analysis of multi-dimensional biomedical images such as magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound. His research focuses on devising novel methods and applying existing techniques to real-world applications for solving problems of segmentation and registration, tracking and matching, shape representation and deformation analysis of anatomical structures in medical images. Of particular interest are the statistical analysis of organ shape variation, the automated detection of pathology and structural abnormality, the development of controlled shape deformation techniques, and the incorporation of context-based, intelligent mechanisms for image registration and segmentation.
