Biomedical image analysis – x-ray images

This project consisted in the design and development of a software program to be used in the MATLAB programming language. The program was intended to quantify the area and texture of knee swelling areas, selected by medical personnel, by processing and analyzing a radiographic image and was intended for use in the Physical Rehabilitation department in the hospital at the University Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, in Rome, Italy. 

Accomplishments
  • I developed a Matlab software which was appreciated by medical personnel and implemented to be used at the hospital. 
Overcome impediments
  • I needed to understand the specifics of the software, therefore I interviewed the client.
  • I needed to find the Matlab functions which corresponded to the mathematical functions I had implemented in the model, therefore I referred to the Matlab documentation.
Skills acquired or improved:

Matlab, Mathematics, communication skills.
