Research Interests

Dr. Atkins is interested in the field of Medical Image Display and Analysis, as well as issues surrounding telehealth. This includes MR image segmentation, brain atrophy studies, image registration, denoising and enhancement, and radiology workstation design. Other areas of study include the use of eyetrackers which provide a new imaging modality for seeing inside the brain.

Dr. Atkins is the current Director of the SFU Medical Computing Lab.
