Noha Ghatwary and Alyaa Amer attended the Medical Imaging Summer School that was held in Favignana, Sicily. They had the chance to engage with around 160 medical image researchers and share their knowledge through discussion and reading groups.
The school held several lectures that discussed different topics presented by different Lectures expert in that field. Also, Noha Ghatwary had the chance to present the accepted paper “Liver CT Enhancement using Fractional Differentiation and Integration” in the poster session and discuss it with the attendees.
The paper title is ” Liver CT Enhancement using Fractional Differentiation and Integration”
In this paper, a digital image filter is proposed to enhance the Liver CT image for improving the classification of tumors area in an infected Liver. The enhancement process is based on improving the main features within the image by utilizing the Fractional Differential and Integral in the wavelet sub-bands of an image. After enhancement, different features were extracted such as GLCM, GRLM, and LBP, among others. Then, the areas/cells are classified into tumor or non-tumor, using different models of classifiers to compare our proposed model with the original image and various established filters. Each image is divided into 15×15 non-overlapping blocks, to extract the desired features. The SVM, Random Forest, J48 and Simple Cart were trained on a supplied dataset, different from the test dataset. Finally, the block cells are identified whether they are classified as tumor or not. Our approach is validated on a group of patients’ CT liver tumor datasets. The experiment results demonstrated the efficiency of enhancement in the proposed technique.
Members of DCAPI have presented and showed their research work in the third Annual Showcase Event for the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln. (6th and 7th May). The event accompanied by wide attendances from several companies (Google UK, Siemens, QinetiQ, mass, Artsgraphica, Heritage Lincolnshire, …).
Saddam also won the “Best Presentation” prize for his video similarity detection presentation.
Members of DCAPI have presented and showed their research work in the Annual Showcase Event for the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln. (14th and 15th May). Saddam also won the “Best Demo” prize for his video matching & retrieval interactive demo.
Postgraduates by Research (PGRs) had all day on Wed 14th May and featured in the morning of Thursday 15th May as well, with visitors and companies representatives.
The event is organised by Dr Amr Ahmed (Leader of the DCAPI group, and the Program Leader for PGRs), for a number of years.
The event was also officially opened (and concluded) by the Head of School, Dr David Cobham, who attended the full program and handed the certificates to winners as well as the Helpers, including the Admin team.
All had fun during the Poster session and inbetween the sessions as well.

Welcome to the DCAPI research group.
Our multi-disciplinary research is mainly focused on the analysis and mining of digital contents (Visual; images and videos, and textual). This includes Computer Vision, Image/Video Processing and analysis, Semantic Analysis, annotation, Action recognition, Image/Video Matching and similarity (Copy & Near-Duplicate detection), and many others.
We welcome any discussion and potential collaboration. Please get in touch with us (contacts on the right side-bar).
