Postdoc researcher Are Losnegård

I am a postdoc researcher at the Haukeland University Hospital and University of Bergen, Norway.
My research interests are within the field of Medical Image Processing, more specifically image registration
and segmentation, using Matlab and Python. I am a member of the
Abdominal Imaging Research Group at the Department of Radiology, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen, and the
Neuroinformatics and Image Analysis Laborotory
in the Neuroscience Research Group
at the Department of Biomedicine, UoB.
My Postdoc project has the title "Application of multiparametric MR imaging, pattern recognition and machine learning in prostate cancer diagnosis and prognosis". During my PhD I worked on
a) segmentation methods for the colon for use in radiotherapy planning
(PDF)
b) retinal neuron segmentation and reconstruction for use in physiological modeling of signal transmission (PDF)
c) fiber tracking in DW-MRI (PDF) (PDF) (PPTX)
