This summer the Clinical Imaging Analysis Lab had the pleasure of hosting two interns through the IMPACT Biomedical Engineering REU program. Two undergraduate students spent 10 weeks interning at the CIA Lab at Wake Forest Baptist Health working on a plethora of ongoing research projects.
Hunter Hampton (right) is an undergraduate student at the University of Miami majoring in Biomedical Engineering. He is planning on pursuing an MD degree and thus his projects were focused on the clinical aspect of our research. His main project was image annotation of Follicular Lymphoma for training of an in-progress deep learning algorithm. In addition he redesigned this website, created a workflow for physicians on image annotation access, and conducted an in-depth literature review on anal cancer.
Meredith Jones (left) is a rising senior at Muhlenberg College studying Physics, Computer Science, & Mathematics. This summer she has focused on image analysis of annotated Follicular Lymphoma scans. In order to help train deep learning algorithms to annotate these scans, she created an algorithm to evaluate the performance. She also is working on the creation of a graphical user interface which will be capable of executing multiple functions that will help pathologists navigate between different annotation software.
