New paper comparing methods and software packages for spatially normalizing multiple sclerosis data accepted for publication in MRI
This project was an enormous undertaking, so congratulations to Salina, Nasir and the rest of the CCOMS Study Group! Page proofs are already available online (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0730725X19306265), and the final version should be available soon.
The US Patent for our Automated 3D Centerline Extraction Method has been Granted! Congratulations Sohail!
It was an incredible amount of work (far more than any scientific paper I have published) and took almost 2 years since filing the provisional application, but Sohail’s United States Patent has now been issued: https://patents.google.com/patent/US10438406B2/en
Major thanks to Dr. Loren Oschipok at the University of Manitoba Technology Transfer Office for all of his assistance with this as well!

Congratulations to Nasir on the acceptance of his latest paper (this time in Scientific Reports)
Congratulations to Nasir, whose follow-up work (to his other recent papers in NMR in Biomedicine and Magnetic Resonance Imaging) has just been accepted for publication in Scientific Reports. Way to go Nasir!
A New MSc Student Joins the Lab: Wecome Soumik!
We are very glad to welcome Md Soumik Farhan, who has just joined the lab as a new MSc Student in the BME Program. For more details about Soumik’s background and interests, please go to http://www.figleylab.ca/people/
Congratulations to Nasir on landing a faculty position at the University of Rochester
Although we will miss him dearly, we all wish Nasir the best of luck as he departs Winnipeg for a new position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester (Department of Neurology). Congratulations Nasir – safe travels!
Congratulations to Nasir on the publication of his latest paper (in Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
Congratulations to Nasir, whose follow-up work (to his other recent paper in NMR in Biomedicine) has just been published in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Outstanding work Nasir, keep the papers coming!
Congratulations to Sohail on the acceptance of his paper in the Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering
Congratulations to Sohail, whose recent submission to the The Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering has been accepted. The paper represents the first (and largest) half of Sohail’s MSc thesis work and is entitled “Development, Implementation and Validation of an Automatic Centerline Extraction Algorithm for Complex 3D Objects”. It is already available online ahead of print, and should be released soon as part of an upcoming special issue in the journal. Great job Sohail!
