Sir Michael Brady is Professor of Information Engineering at the University of Oxford and is distinguished for his outstanding contributions to developing computer-based postprocessing for a variety of medical images, and applying his work to a wide range of medical problems, particularly breast, liver, and colorectal cancer. His theoretical work has led to improved image quality, increased image precision, and substantially improved the robustness and accuracy of medical image analysis.With his colleague Dr. Ralph Highnam, Professor Brady pioneered the entirely novel “physics-based” approach to analysing digitised mammograms by modelling mathematically the passage of x-rays through breast tissue. Highnam and Brady’s monograph has led digital mammography research over the past eight years and is now implemented in the commercially leading R2 Image Checker CAD system. Brady and his team have subsequently developed similar physics-based approaches to detecting cancers in the breast, colon, rectum and liver.
