Project Description

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • Run feature detection code over a collection of medical images pulled from PACS
  • Investigate a collection of ADC maps of neonates (diffusion MR)
  • Patients labeled with age and health status (normal, mildly abnormal, severely abnormal)
  • Use 3D SIFT code to see if health status can be detected in images
  • (if time) try text analysis of radiology reports
  • Use deidentified cohort of neonate images collected from MGH
  • Install data and software on AWS, try StarCluster
  • Explore visualization options
  • (if time) integrate image features with analysis of radiology report text


  • feature extraction (20 seconds per image)
  • Feature matching O(log N) indexing (< 1 second per image)
  • 3D SIFT-Rank code (Windows, Linux, Max) and read me


Result Baseline HIE classification rate: 73%, leave-one-out moderate vs normal.

Data 231 subjects, Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) images.
