Methods and Models for Biological Signals and Images

The research area of the Methods and Models for Biological Signals and Images (M2oBSI) group is biological and medical image reconstruction, processing and analysis. The aim is to develop signal and image processing methods for automatic analysis of 3D functional images.

Group members

The M2oBSI group is part of the Signal Processing Algorithm Group (SPAG) at Department of Signal Processing in Tampere University of Technology . SPAG has been elected an Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence for 2006-2011.

The M2oBSI group is working in close collaboration with Turku PET Center. The funding to our work comes from the Academy of Finland, the National Technology Agency, Tampere Graduate School in Information Science and Engineering and the Graduate School of Tampere University of Technology. The group is also in close collaboration with the companies Techila Technologies Ltd and ATOSTEK Oy as well as the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

The national node of INCF (International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility) is coordinated by M2obsi group leader Ulla Ruotsalainen.

The M2oBSI group is also part of the AXPET collaboration among the 8 other international partners.
