Multidisciplinary and Computational Anatomy: Concept and Clinical Application



Makoto Hazhizume
Graduate School of Medical Sciences
Kyushu Univ. (Japan)


Abstract: A new project, Multidisciplinary Computational Anatomy (MCA) has started in Japan in 2014. It is funded by MEXT Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas. The project aims at understanding the dynamic, living human anatomy by integration of multidisciplinary information with medical images from different kinds of modalities. Emphasis is set to a theory establishment and base construction of the mathematical study foundation, and to expand the range of the new clinical application system for making a correct decision in diagnosis and treatment. MCA-based medicine is one of the ideal solutions in the future medicine.

Biography: Dr. Makoto Hashizume graduated after Kyushu University School of Medicine in 1979.
