Education Exhibit | LL-INE1200-TUA | Lakeside Learning CenterIn this exhibit, researchers from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles will present how graphics processing units (GPUs) can improve the performance of 3D computer-aided detection (CAD) software for multiple sclerosis.
The exhibit will demonstrate that it's possible to implement GPUs to improve the running time of a CAD system -- in this case, a multiple sclerosis (MS) CAD system, said presenter Anh Le, PhD.
Employing GPUs are worth investigating and eventually deploying in clinical use to improve data and image processing time, Le said.
"With [the] success of GPU implementation for MS CAD, this application could be deployed in [the] clinical environment in [the] near future," Le told AuntMinnie.com. "MS CAD can also be extended to an MS electronic patient record system to monitor the progress of this disease to have MS patients getting better care and treatment."
