Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Segmentation, White matter and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. Wiro J. Niessen combines subjects such as Nuclear magnetic resonance and Pattern recognition with his study of Artificial intelligence. His Computer vision study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Imaging phantom.

The various areas that he examines in his Segmentation study include Voxel, Tomography and Brain tissue. His White matter study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nuclear medicine, Hyperintensity and Diffusion MRI. Wiro J. Niessen has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Genome-wide association study, Oncology and Cardiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Muliscale Vessel Enhancement Filtering (2736 citations)
  • Incidental findings on brain MRI in the general population. (1009 citations)
  • Prevalence and risk factors of cerebral microbleeds The Rotterdam Scan Study (575 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Wiro J. Niessen mainly investigates Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Radiology, Segmentation and Magnetic resonance imaging. As part of his studies on Artificial intelligence, Wiro J. Niessen frequently links adjacent subjects like Pattern recognition. His study in Computer vision is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Visualization and Robustness.

His study looks at the relationship between Radiology and fields such as Coronary arteries, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The study incorporates disciplines such as Internal medicine, Nuclear medicine and Cardiology in addition to Magnetic resonance imaging. Wiro J. Niessen usually deals with White matter and limits it to topics linked to Hyperintensity and Pathology and Diffusion MRI.
