The research of Timothy L. Kline, Ph.D., focuses on the development of novel image acquisition and image processing techniques to study disease processes and improve patient care.
Dr. Kline is actively developing algorithms to automate image analysis methods, such as the segmentation of polycystic kidneys to automate measurement of total kidney volume. He is also searching for new imaging biomarkers of disease through both the development of new image acquisition protocols (such as methods to characterize microscopic cysts and fibrosis) and analysis techniques (such as texture analysis and deep learning methods).
Dr. Kline hopes that his advancements in automation and novel imaging classification techniques will help evolve individualized patient care. By standardizing routinely performed measurements and providing new image-based biomarkers, Dr. Kline's research significantly impacts the assessment of patient prognosis and allows providers to judge the effectiveness of interventions more quickly.
