Image Registration for Medical Research, Diagnosis and Intervention
Max A. Viergev er received the MSc degree in applied mathematics in 1972 and the DSc degree with a thesis on cochlear mechanics in 1980, both from Delft University of Technology. From 1972 to 1988 he was Assistant/Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics at this university.
Since 1988 he has been Professor and Head of the Department of Medical Imaging at Utrecht University, since 1989 Professor of Physics and since 1996 Professor of Computer Science at the same university. Since 1996 he has been Scientific Director of the Image Sciences Institute of the University Medical Center Utrecht, since 1998 Director of the Research School for Biomedical Image Sciences (ImagO), and as of 2002 Manager Education and Research of the Division of Radiology, Radiotherapy, and Nuclear Medicine of the University Medical Center Utrecht.
He is (co)author of more than 450 refereed scientific articles (abstracts excluded) on biophysics and medical image processing, guest editor of eight journal issues, (co)author/editor of 15 books, and has served as s upervisor of 85 PhD theses and >100 MSc theses. His research interests comprise all aspects of medical imaging.
Max Vier gever is an Honorary Senator of the University of Ljubljana, an Honorary Member of the Dutch Society for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing, and a recipient of the Catharijne Award. He is an Elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics IOP, of the International Association of Pattern Recognition IAPR, and of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers IEEE.
He is (co)author of three best journal articles (Comput. & Graphics 1996, J. Comput. Assist. Tomogr. 1997, Diabetes 2007) and of nine best conference presentations, and has received two citation awards for most frequently cited articles (IEEE T. Med. Imaging 1988, 1995). He has been a board member of IAPR, IPMI and MICCAI, editor of the Springer book series Computational Imaging and Vision, editor-in-chief of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, editor of the Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision, and has acted as associate editor, guest editor or editorial board member of eleven more international journals.
