Technical Computing (Data Analysis) with MATLAB

8:45 AM – 9:00 AM Registration and Sign-in (Walk-ins welcome)

10:00 AM – 11:30 AM Technical Computing with MATLAB

This presentation will touch on the concepts of Technical Computing, showing how an entire data analysis workflow can be managed using MATLAB. Through a product demonstration, you will see how you can use the MATLAB product family to:

  • Access data from many sources, including spreadsheets (such as Excel)
  • Quickly explore, analyze, and visualize data with easy-to-use visual interfaces and built-in engineering functions
  • Perform statistical analysis, and use curve fitting to generate a predictive model
  • Customize and automate analysis and reporting

We’ve allotted ~30 minutes for Q&A at the end of this session.

Image Processing with MATLAB

1:00 PM – 1:15 PM Registration and Sign-in (Walk-ins welcome)

1:15 PM – 4:00 PM Image Processing with MATLAB

Using a medical image processing problem, we will explore options for importing and exploring imagery, for deciding on and developing an algorithm for extracting data from the image, and for leveraging the algorithm for re-use and batch-processing in an automated environment.

We will then describe MATLAB’s core report-generation capabilities, and discuss how to deploy our application—perhaps in a custom-built GUI. Finally, we will show the ease with which Excel can be used in conjunction with MATLAB—for archiving results, for example. Highlights include:

  • Image I/O
  • Algorithm Development
  • Function generation and process automation
  • Report generation
  • GUI building

We will wrap up with some specific medical image processing examples, but the techniques and methods shown can be generalized to a number of image processing applications.

  • Volume Visualization from a brain MRI image stack
  • Measurement of vessel tortuosity

We’ve allotted ~30 minutes for Q&A at the end of this session.
