Medical Informatics

Medical Informatics (MI) at Linköping University was founded in 1973. Head of the group is Professor Hans Knutsson.

The overall purpose of systems developed in the field of medical informatics is to extract and present clinically relevant information. Medical information appears in many different forms: Text, Parameters,Value Measurements, Time Courses, Images, Volumes, Image and Volume Sequences. Methods to attain new types of information is continuously being developed and the detail and quality of recorded data is increasing rapidly. Huge amounts of potentially relevant information can be tied to one single patient. In addition it is necessary to be able to integrate and analyze information from a large number of patients and time instances. This development has led to a situation where we are at risk of drowning in the overwhelming flow of information.

To be able to extract the relations that are pertinent in a given situation and to present them in a way that is simple to understand is rapidly becoming the main problem. Efficient solutions of this problem will be crucial components in future health care. To develop principles and methods for such solutions is the goal the research in the field of medical informatics.

To meet these challenges research is in general directed towards the development of adaptive and machine learning techniques for representation, presentation and visualization of multimodal, multivariate and multidimensional medical data and knowledge. In particular the research group focuses on the development of systems for medical decision support and medical image analysis. A number of graduate and undergraduate courses focusing on these topics are regularly given by the Medical Informatics group.

MI is a part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and a part of the Linköping Institute of Technology. MI is also affiliated to the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualisation, CMIV, and the Faculty of Health Sciences. Presently the group consists of 20 people.
