Musculoskeletal Image Analysis

This research line focuses on using artificial intelligence and advanced image analysis techniques to improve diagnosis and prediction of musculoskeletal diseases. This research line is closely collaborating with the ADMIRE research group and image registration group. We are also collaborating with Dept. of General Practice, Dept. of Orthopedics, Dept. of Internal Medicine, and Dept. of Epidemiology within Erasmus MC. External collaborations include TU Delft, UMC Utrecht, and University of Oulu.

The research projects include automatic segmentation of structures on MRI, imaging biomarker extraction from medical images, detection and diagnosis abnormalities, and prediction of onset and progression of musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoarthritis.

We are continuosly open to host MSc students for their research internships and thesis projects.
