Dr Andrew Gee researches image processing and analysis techniques for computed tomography (CT). He is one of the developers of Cortical Bone Mapping (CBM), a toolchain that allows precise measurement of cortical thickness and density from clinical CT. The resulting bone maps can be registered onto a canonical surface and then analysed across large cohorts. CBM has been used to identify focal defects that increase fracture risk, and also produce detailed maps showing where, on the cortex, pharmaceutical and exercise interventions have most effect.
