77. Human brain atlases and applications: research, development and commercialization
Prof. Wieslaw L. Nowinski, D.Sc., Ph.D. – Visiting scientist, Sano Centre for Computational Medicine, Krakow, PL; a.o. creator of “world’s most gorgeous” human brain atlases
This presentation is an overview of my human brain atlas-related work. I will share knowledge and experience in designing and developing human brain atlases, including a 3D interactive atlas of the normal brain, 3D brain atlas of neurologic disorders, probabilistic functional atlas, and probabilistic stroke atlas. I will feature atlas applications in education, research, and clinics focusing on neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and stroke. Finally, I will present my process and experience in R&D commercialization.
