Facial analysis technology is being used in medicine that will help children all over the world. Marius George Linguraru, PhD, who loves working with multidisciplinary teams of clinicians, scientists and engineers to help children grow healthy and happy, presents his talk "Digital Dysmorphology for Diverse Ppoulations with Genetic Syndromes" to a meeting of IEEE Region 4's Southern Minnesota section.

Distinguished lecturer Marius George Linguraru PhD, is a principal investigator in the Translational Biodesign Initiative of the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation. Within the Bioengineering Initiative, Dr. Linguraru leads the medical image analysis efforts and will develop tools for computer-aided diagnosis, minimally-invasive interventions and multi-organ modeling of anatomy and physiology in children. These efforts are enhancing traditional medical imaging modalities and create modern clinical tools for pediatric radiology and oncology. Surgeons will be able to perform less invasive interventions with the use of pioneering imaging techniques. Dr. Linguraru is internationally known for his work in radiology and medical image processing, particularly in harnessing software based technology to enhance the clinical use of existing imaging tools. He joins the Sheikh Zayed Institute from the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, where he served as staff scientist in Radiology and Imaging Sciences. He maintains an appointment as a guest researcher within that center. Dr. Linguraru is currently a Member Elect of the Technical Committee for Medical Imaging and Image Processing of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Dr. Linguraru completed his doctorate at University of Oxford and holds two master's degrees from the University of Sibiu, Romania. He held postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University and the French National Institute of Research in Informatics and Mathematics.
