Mahnaz Maddah Ph. D. (September 2003-June 2010)

Mahnaz received her BSc and MSc degrees in electrical engineering, electronics, from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2000 and 2002 respectively.

In 2001, she joined the Signal and Image Processing Group at the of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics, Tehran, Iran, where she was a researcher under supervision of Prof. Hamid Soltanian-Zadeh and Prof. Ali Afzali-Kushaa. She developed two algorithms for automatic centerline extraction of vascular images in Confocal Microscopy.

In September 2003, she joined SPL as a volunteer where she is involved in a project to optimize parameters of segmentation algorithms using STAPLE (Simultaneous Truth and Performance level Estimation) under supervision of Dr. Simon Warfield. The idea is taking a collection of segmentation algorithms and a set of imaging data, estimating ground truth, and then for each algorithm in turn, optimizing the parameters of the algorithm to generate the best segmentation More about Mahnaz...
