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 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!

Congratulations to Shatil on the publication of his recent paper in Frontiers in Medicine!

Congratulations to Shatil and the rest of the team on the acceptance of our most recent paper in Frontiers in Medicine. The paper represents the second half of Shatil’s MSc thesis work and is entitled “Quantitative Ex Vivo MRI Changes due to Progressive Formalin Fixation in Whole Human Brain Specimens: Longitudinal Characterization of Diffusion, Relaxometry, and Myelin Water Fraction Measurements at 3T”. Congratulations Shatil!

Congratulations to Nasir on the acceptance of his recent submission to NMR In Biomedicine

Congratulations to Nasir and the rest of the team on the acceptance of our most recent paper in NMR in Biomedicine. The paper, which is now available online (ahead of print), is entitled “Can T1w/T2w ratio be used as a myelin-specific measure in subcortical structures? Comparisons between FSE-based T1w/T2w ratios, GRASE-based T1w/T2w ratios, and multi-echo GRASE-based myelin water fractions”. Nice work Nasir!
