The main research interests of the Vienna Dermatologic Imaging Research (ViDIR) group are in vivo skin imaging, artificial intelligence, machine learning, simulation, computational biology, and morphometry and morphogenesis. We use different techniques to generate static and dynamic images of the human skin in vivo such as dermatoscopy, confocal microscopy, optical coherence tomography, total body photography, and multimodal devices. We perform data-driven science and extract knowledge from structured and unstructured data from image and text data. We use artificial intelligence and machine learning to diagnose skin diseases. We have collaboration with many research groups worldwide including dermatology and computer science labs.
Our group made important contributions to the following fields of research.
- Dermatoscopy, digital dermatoscopy, and sequential dermatoscopy
- Computer assisted and automated diagnosis of skin lesions, computational diagnostics and machine learning
- In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustic, multimodal imaging, and dermatopathology
