Biography

Dean focuses on developing deformable registration techniques for aligning diagnostic-quality MR images of the prostate to transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) images obtained during ablative interventions and needle biopsy procedures. The aim of this research is to provide high-accuracy surgical guidance technology to enable MR-targeted biopsy and minimally-invasive treatments for prostate cancer. The group has developed an automatic registration technique for this purpose which combines biomechanical tissue modelling and stastical techniques. Other areas of research activity include multifunctional MR imaging of prostate cancer, automatic segmentation of MR images, and computer simulation of biopsy protocols to maximise tumour detection and localisation accuracy.
