The overall objective of this paper is to describe ongoing research programs in the Medical Informatics Laboratory in the Bioengineering Center of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Current research projects are highly interdisciplinary, spanning such areas as computer vision and image processing, artificial intelligence, and computer graphics and visualization. In general, the emphasis of the research programs is placed on the processing, interpretation, and display of biomedical imagery. These investigations, supported by an expanding academic program in bioengineering and performed in collaboration with medical researchers, are aimed at exploring basic issues in science and engineering while at the same time contributing practical solutions to a variety of problems in health care.
