QUANTIMB Lab - York University

Welcome to the QUANTIMB Lab!

Our laboratory develops quantitative imaging and smart biomarker technologies for tissue characterization in various diagnostic, interventional, and prognostic applications, with a special focus on cancer. Our evolving technologies analyze signals acquired from different imaging modalities using intelligent signal processing, computational modeling, and machine learning to derive smart imaging biomarkers for specific biological or clinical applications. We develop ad hoc AI algorithms and integrate them with these biomarkers to diagnose an abnormality, tailor a standard therapy for individual patients, or predict the outcome of a prescribed treatment. A number of imaging modalities being transformed in our laboratory for smart biomarker discovery include ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, photoacoustic imaging, computed tomography, dielectric imaging, and microscopy imaging.
