Professor James Duncan from Yale University, USA, gave the fourth Oxford Medtronic Lecture, on Thursday, 9th June. His lecture titled, "Model-Based Strategies for Biomedical Image Analysis," focused on problem areas and visual examples of the brain structure and heart function.

Professor Duncan’s lecture highlighted image analysis strategies, mathematical techniques and a presentation of results obtained when analysing actual patient image data relating to the heart and brain.

Professor James S Duncan PhD, Ebenezer K. Hunt Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Professor of Diagnostic Radiology and Electrical Engineering, said: “The development of methods to accurately and reproducibly recover useful quantitative information from biomedical images is often hampered by uncertainties in handling the data related to: image acquisition parameters, the variability of normal biological, anatomical and physiological structure and function, the presence of disease or other abnormal conditions, and a variety of other factors.”
