Tortuosity Analysis and SOM

Vessels of all shapes and sizes.


In the summer of 2018, I had the opportunity to intern at Professor Van Savage’s lab at UCLA. My focus was on analyzing the tortuosity and torsion of vessels, and then finding a way to categorize them.

For vessel analysis, I wrote a program in R. For categorizing, I wrote a SOFM with ANN pattern recognition in Python.
