Medical Systems (Medisys) Lab conducts convergence research in medical science, which will lead the future medical/healthcare industries. The research focuses on convergence between IT, BT, and HT to generate new paradigm of next generation medical/healthcare research. Medical/healthcare is the representative convergence research requiring knowledge of IT, mechanics, materials, biology, chemistry, and medicine. Medisys lab mainly focuses on early diagnosis of diseases based on IT, BT, and NT technology. The main research theme includes electromagnetic wave imaging (EMW Imaing), photon counting detector based spectral CT system, image reconstruction algorithm, and artificial retinal prosthesis system.
Professor Baek and his team have been carried out research on (1) spectral CT and phase contrast CT which have the high material discriminability than conventional CT systems, (2) Non-linear Image Reconstruction Algorithm Research for the low dose CT System, (3) CT Artifacts Correction Algorithm and (4) the next-generation CT systems overcoming the limitations of current CT systems.
Artificial retina is a visual prosthesis device that can be implanted to blind people who have retinal disease to pass on visual information to neural cells. To read text, recognize faces, walk without any auxiliary device, it is essential to have high extendibility and high resolution. Our group mainly researches on pulse generating part and stimulus part to implement highly reliable, extendable artificial retina. Stimulating neural cells with self-oscillating device is a unique and outstanding technique that can be used widely in neuro-science.
Our research group has studied radar system, radio-wave signal processing and visualization algorithm in the area of military, and medical as well as industrial. We are managing high-end RF measurement equipment and a radio-wave anechoic chamber.
