Research Expertise: Medical imaging | Computational image analysis | Image-guided surgical planning | Shape modeling | Heart valve disease
Alison is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering and a co-director and graduate of the HHMI-NIBIB Interfaces Program in Biomedical Imaging and Informational Sciences. Her research group specializes in developing computational image analysis methods for anatomical shape modeling and visualization to guide surgical interventions. A long-term focus of her research is modeling heart valve morphology and dynamics in medical images for risk stratification and planning of heart valve repair surgery. The broad goal of her group is to use automated image analytics to predict surgical outcomes, to inform development of surgical guidelines, and to advance the use of minimally invasive treatment strategies.
