Prof. Hyoungseop Kim received his B.A. degree in electrical engineering from Kyushu Institute of Technology in 1994, the Masters and Ph.D. degree from Kyushu Institute of Technology in 1996 and 2001, respectively. He is a professor in the department of control engineering at Kyushu Institute of Technology. His research interests are focused on medical application of image analysis.


Title of Speech: "Image Registration Techniques and Its Application for Computer Aided Diagnosis in Medical Field"

Abstract: For reducing the load to radiologist and improving of detection accuracy, a CAD (Computer Aided Diagnosis) system is expected from medical fields. In the medical image processing fields, many related works are reported to develop the CAD system as helpful technical issues. On the other hand, detection of subtle lesions on CT images is a difficult task for radiologists, because subtle shadows tend to have low contrast, and a large number of CT images be interpreted in a limited time. A temporal subtraction image, which is obtained by subtraction of a previous image from a current one, can be used for enhancing interval changes, such as difference in the size of a tumor, on medical images by removing most of the normal structures. For detection of lesions in chest radiographs, the temporal subtraction technique has been applied successfully to clinical cases. Although the overall performance of the temporal subtraction technique was relatively good, registration errors still remained. In this talk, we propose a new non-rigid image warping technique for accurate registration and subtraction of two thoracic MDCT images.

Title of Speech: "A Large-Scale Dynamic Model of Central Carbon Metabolism for Rational Design of Cell Factories"


Abstract: A kinetic model provides insights into the dynamic response of biological systems and predicts how their complex metabolic and gene regulatory networks generate biological functions. Biochemical networks within a cell have been modeled extensively at the molecular interaction level. We proposed a powerful methodology of how a large-scale complex biochemical networks are modeled for rational design of cell factories and for understanding of their design principles.
