Dr. Yaswanth’s areas of interest in research are Advanced Communications and Medical Image Processing and Analysis. As part of his PhD, he did research on Automated MRI Segmentation Framework for Brains with Tumors and Multiple Sclerosis Lesions. At VVIT, he has guided his students to reach the finals in designing and developing prototypes of Accident Information System and Automated Irrigation System projects as part of ISB Hyderabad Technology Entrepreneurship Program (TEP) Design Challenge. He encourages his students to implement IoT based projects using latest Arduino and Raspberry Pi development boards. He uses NPTEL videos to teach his students in addition to using blackboard, PPTs and animations in class to foster a yearning to learn. His teaching methodology helps to encourage in students, a hunger for learning and excitement about the next quest.

I love facing challenges. It has been tough to compete with the best minds in developing prototypes for ISB TEP design challenge, and I’m proud that my students are making it to the finals every year.

Dr Yaswanth’s Research – Automated MRI Segmentation Framework for Brains with Tumors and Multiple Sclerosis Lesions

Brain tissue segmentation from the magnetic resonance (MR) images is having considerable importance in the medical research field and has been useful in many applications such as detection of tumors, measuring tumor volume and its response to therapy, detection of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions in young adults, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Brain tissue is a complex structure and hence proper diagnosis of many brain disorders greatly depend upon accurate classification and segmentation of brain tissues which is still a challenging and demanding task for researchers working in this field.

Dr Yaswanth’s research emphasizes on devising novel strategies and methodologies for an automated brain MR image segmentation scheme with an aim to address the segmentation problems while improving the segmentation accuracy. Improved segmentation accuracies of brain MR images would help radiologists to precisely determine the location of brain tumors and lesions in the patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and dementia. It would help doctors to accurately diagnose these diseases within a short period of time and provide better treatment.

Dr Yaswanth is a professor who wears many hats. He has presented guest lectures in the field of Medical Imaging, Advanced Communications in various colleges. He is a reviewer and editorial board member of various international journals. He has also successfully organized various extra-curricular and co-curricular activities with students in addition to regular academics. He is a fine actor and participates regularly in staff dramas at VVIT annual cultural fest – a one-of-its-kind staff event in engineering college fests. He has also been helping GATE aspirants during Sundays and holidays in various institutes such as GATE Forum, GATE Academy, TIME, VISHWA etc. since 2008.
