Seminar on Statistical Anatomic Models, Registration, and Reconstruction

Note: This page is still under construction. The old SARR Seminar Page may be found at


This weekly research seminar will focus generally on statistical modeling of anatomic structures, image and model registration, 3D image reconstruction methods, and their interrelationships. We will concentrate primarily, though not exclusively, on x-ray based imaging modalities (x-ray fluoroscopy, CT, cone-beam tomography, “hybrid” reconstruction methods, etc.).

Although the seminar will prominently feature ongoing research within the laboratories of Profs. Taylor, Siewerdsen, and Prince, it is 'not' intended to replace or replicate project meetings tied to individual research grants. Our goals include:

  • Increased communication and awareness of research problems, progress, and results of mutual interest among participants
  • Development of new research problems and concepts, based on in-depth discussion
  • Increased awareness of and sharing of common infrastructure, software, toolkits, and data
  • Development of enhanced shared infrastructure and toolkits based on new research ideas

The format will vary somewhat depending on the selected topic or topics, but generally we will have a 15-20 minute presentation followed by 40-45 minutes discussion.
