D. Louis Collins, Ph.D.

I’m a professor in the departments of Neurology & Neurosurgery, and Biomedical Engineering at McGill University of Montreal, Canada, associate member of the Center for Intelligent Machines at Mcgill and associate member for the McGill Center for studies on aging. I work at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre of the Montreal Neurological Institute. I am head of the NeuroImaging and Surgical Technologies laboratory.

My research involves automated anatomical segmentation and atlasing in a neurological and neurosurgical context. Computerized image processing techniques, such as non-linear image registration and model-based segmentation, are used to automatically identify structures within the human brain. These techniques are applied to a large database of magnetic resonance (MR) data from normal subjects to quantify anatomical variability and to compare the brains of people with a neurological disease to the brains of healthy controls. In image guided neurosurgery (IGNS), similar techniques provide the surgeon with computerized tools to assist in interpreting anatomical, functional and vascular image data to effectively plan and carry out minimally-invasive neurosurgical procedures.

Most of my research is described within the context of the Neuro Imaging and Surgical Technologies Laboratory. However, there are some links below that might be of interest:
