Gibson Receives $366K NSF Grant Award

UTSA assistant professor of computer science Dr. Matthew Gibson was granted a $366,250 research grant from the National Science Foundation.

His project, titled "AitF: Collaborative Research: Automated Medical Image Segmentation via Object Decomposition,” aims to develop a novel medical image segmentation algorithm that can be applied to various types of medical images.

In the past, this highly technical, individualized care has required experts to manually analyze the images. Gibson’s algorithm will simultaneously identify all the components for vital organs. This single algorithm can be applied to many scenarios and be executable by non-technical users, making it more accessible to medical professionals and lead to more comprehensive and customized care for patients.
