Artificial intelligence for medical image analysis


About Us

The Motion Modelling and Analysis Group (MMAG) is an academic research group based within the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences of King's College London. The group is based at St. Thomas' Hospital in central London. The MMAG includes researchers from a diverse range of backgrounds and is proud to foster an inclusive research environment to allow all to thrive and reach their potential.

The MMAG has worked in the past on the imaging, modelling and estimation of repetitive motion. Currently, the group works more widely on the use of artificial intelligence (specifically machine and deep learning) for the analysis of imaging data with the aim of extracting clinically useful information. Cardiology is one of the main application areas but the group is also involved in developing machine learning solutions for other clinical application areas, such as radiotherapy and vocal tract imaging. The aim is to develop novel but clinically-driven machine learning solutions and translate them into equitable patient benefit.
