    Sina Farsiu: Biomedical Engineer Processes an Avalanche of Images

    Sina Farsiu wants to figure out how to peer into your soul . . . or at least your brain. An expert in designing computer image processing algorithms, Farsiu is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Duke Medicine who recently accepted a primary appointment in the Pratt biomedical engineering department with the hopes of strengthening collaborations across the university. “When President Bush said he looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and got a sense of his soul, he was actually on to something,” said Farsiu, who has a long history of collaborating with peers in Duke’s engineering school. “The retina is part ...

    1. When President Bush said he looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and got a sense of his soul, he was actually on to something...The retina is part of the central nervous system, and there is a lot you can learn by looking at it in detail.
    2. Advancements in medical imaging hardware are both a blessing and a curse. The technology is extremely valuable, but it is also creating so much data that clinicians don’t have the time or the capacity to handle it all...We want to make automated algorithms that can condense the data into a few quantified measures that clinicians can use to make better diagnoses.
