Software to save lives

Creating a streamlined, time-efficient process for radiologists and physicians, fourth year PhD student Bao Wang presented software that provides an automated pipeline to identifying a chronic stroke lesion.

Used proactively, the software can screen a healthy individual’s brain to detect abnormalities. Following a stroke, however, the same software can assess the patient’s response to therapy and predict recovery.

“The beauty of this [software] is that we’ve taken a process that used to take days and reduced it to minutes. That time can help save lives,” said Wang, whose work has been supervised by Aggelos Katsaggelos, AT&T Research Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
