Current involvements


The NETDELIVER European network (Network on numerical modeling and simulation of anticancer drug delivery in liver) aims at developing a novel digital and physiological model of the liver perfusion, capable of simulating by a computer the injection of a drug within the liver and its impact upon healthy tissues and hepatic lesions.

Nouveau recruté Région Auvergne (Coord.)

In the project «Détection et visualisation interactives des tumeurs du foie dans les séquences de contraste pour l'aide au diagnostic et au traitement», we are developing new image processing and visualization tools for the diagnosis and the treatment of liver lesions.


Development project DGtal (Digital Geometry Tools and Algorithms). DGtal is a generic library (under construction) for digital geometry programming.

Past projects

MARIA (Coord.)

MARIA (Multi-scale Approaches for Robust medical Image Analysis) is a joint PHC/WTZ project between ISIT and PRIP labs. In this project, we would like to study novel multi-scale approaches to solve open problems in the analysis of contrast-enhanced medical image sequences.
Private web site of the project


ANR TECSAN 3DStrain (Quantification multimodale et validation de la fonction myocardique régionale 3D). The goal of this project is to develop a generic formalism for the tracking of the left ventricle, and to adapt it to classic modalities, used in clinical routines (3D ultrasound, CMR, etc.).
Web site of the project


ANR CONTINT project ReVeS (Reconnaissance de Végétaux pour des interfaces Smartphones). We work on the development of image descriptors and classification algorithms adaptable for mobile leaf/flower recognition softwares (on iPhones, etc.).
