Prof. Yoon, Young-Gyu ‘s team from the School of Electrical Engineering has been selected as the recipient of the Young Scientist Award from the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI), 2021.
The Young Scientist Award is an award given to the most excellent paper published at the MICCAI conference, a renowned international academic conference in the field of medical image processing, written by a lead author who is either a student or within two years of receiving a doctorate. This is the first time in Korea to receive this award.
Changyeop Shin (current M.S. student) and Hyun Ryu (current B.S. student) are co-lead authors, and Eun-Seo Cho (current Ph.D. student) is co-author, the following paper won the award: “RLP-Net: A Recursive Light Propagation Network for 3-D Virtual Refocusing,” International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI), 2021.
This paper is about a virtual refocusing technique that restores a three-dimensional image using only two microscope images. The research has shown that accurate virtual refocusing is possible by approximating the light propagation function using a recursive neural network, paying attention to the fact that the light propagation process has spatial invariance.
The award ceremony was held at the 2021 MICCAI Conference, which was held virtually due to the COVID-19 situation. The list of winners will be permanently posted on the MICCAI conference website.
