Dr Shakes Chandra leads research on automatic medical image analysis. His expertise includes image processing, ML, discrete tomography and medical image analysis.

More specifically, he has developed deformable model and ML algorithms for knee, hip and shoulder-joint segmentation for deployment on the Siemens Syngo platform.

UQ is applying the automatic medical image analysis tool to:

  • Complete 3D reconstruction of individual bodies with every mole marked, analysed, and compared with previous scans to assess and diagnose any potential skin cancer.
  • Develop AI and ML-based algorithms to automate the analyses of clinical imaging and to model the biomechanics of joint function, while translating such technologies for industry partners such as Siemens Healthcare, Germany.
