(1) an expert system with application in health care for clinical quality measurement

(2) medical imaging and supervised classification of MR images to support proton radiation therapy of eye tumours

(3) description and design of a knowledge database for feature extraction in medical imaging

(4) classification of atherothrombotic events in myocardial infarctions survivors with supervised machine learning using data from an electronic health record system.

(5) Management of Parkinson's disease patients using wearables activity data and lifestyle data

(6) Using deep neural networks to identify orthopaedic implants or to detect conditions such as Alzheimer
