My name is Erik Smistad and my research is focused on programs and algorithms that can automatically and quickly locate organs and other anatomical structures in medical images (CT, MR, Ultrasound etc.) for the purpose of helping physicians interpret the images and navigate inside the body during surgery. Currently, I am working as a research scientist at SINTEF Medical Technology and as a post doc at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Primary research interests
- Segmentation and tracking of structures in ultrasound images.
- Deep neural networks for medical image segmentation, object detection and classification
- Segmentation and centerline extraction of tubular structures, such as airways and blood vessels.
- Parallel and GPU processing.
