Beatriz Paniagua, Ph.D.

Assistant Director of Medical Computing

Beatriz “Bea” Paniagua, Ph.D., is the assistant director of Kitware’s Medical Computing Team located in Carrboro, North Carolina. Her projects largely focus on craniomaxillofacial, musculoskeletal, and morphometric image analysis (see publications below). 

One of Bea’s main projects is as the Principal Investigator of Slicer Shape AnaLysis Toolbox (SlicerSALT), a software framework that helps researchers study differences in the shape of anatomy in collaboration with UNC and NYU. She is also leading a project to develop a virtual reality training system that recreates the visual, haptic/tactile, ergonomic, procedural, and functional aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. In addition, she is developing automated image analysis methods to detect bone quality in the temporomandibular joint and other bones. Her bone analysis methods can be used to detect bone defects such as sclerosis or loss. Bea is also developing an automated method to detect cracks in teeth, specifically the first and second molars. 

In 2019, the National Institute of Health (NIH) awarded Kitware a $1.6 million dollar grant for a project that was led by Bea. The project aimed to develop a virtual reality surgical training system to allow oral and maxillofacial (OMF) surgeons and residents to learn difficult surgical skills in a risk-free training environment. The Osteotomy Trainer will help surgeons prepare for surgery by allowing them to practice a procedure known as osteotomies, and predict the outcome of interventional decisions before the actual surgery without any risks to the patients. This helps improve the quality of outcomes for patients and the efficiency and operating time for surgeons. 

Bea also kicked off the first “SIG,” or Special Interest Group, for The Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society (MICCAI). This group is focused on shape analysis and modeling in medical imaging. 

Along with her projects at Kitware, Bea is also involved in various company initiatives. She serves on the operation team for Kitware’s Carrboro, North Carolina office. This team meets monthly to discuss community outreach opportunities and other ways to meaningfully engage or employees with our local community

She was also part of an internal committee at Kitware that created more structure around our onboarding processes. Her guidance and feedback were used to help the company maintain a culture that is family-friendly. She supported mentoring programs that would help employees (regardless of gender) advance their careers, with the understanding that this could ultimately lead to advances in science. 

In addition to her work at Kitware, Bea is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) in the departments of orthodontics and computer science. She is also one of the lead engineers of Dental and Craniofacial Bionetwork for Image Analysis (DCBIA). She is a reviewer for several journals and conferences in the field of image analysis such as Medical Image Analysis, The International Journal in Advanced Manufacturing, International Journal in Intelligent Systems, Human Brain Mapping, Neuroimaging, Computerized Medical Image and Graphics, and the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI). 

Bea also works hard to promote female leadership development and addresses issues of female scientists such as career-life balance and gender disparities.

Bea received an invitation from the NIH to serve on its Clinical Neurophysiology, Devices, Neuroprosthetics, and Biosensors Small Business Panel. She was specifically asked to join the review panel to provide her expertise in medical imaging and machine learning in an effort to help bring visionary ideas forward. 

Prior to working at Kitware, Bea was an Assistant Professor at UNC, with joint appointments at Psychiatry, Orthodontics, and Computer Science. Her work focused on shape analysis methodology development, and she maintained and extended the morphometry analysis software toolboxes of the Neuro Image Research and Analysis Laboratories (NIRAL). She also led the Small Animal Image Processing Laboratory section of the NIRAL, which provided image processing services to other investigators. This lab looked at the structural properties of the brain in animal models of autism, Angelman’s syndrome, maternal neglect, or substance abuse. 

In addition to brain morphometry, she was the co-director of the 3D Orofacial Imaging Laboratory. Her projects in craniofacial morphology looked into analyzing the bony structures in the head and how they change due to pathology and treatment. This training and her clinical research collaborations in dentistry and neuroimaging placed Bea in the unique position to understand the computer-based analytical needs in these fields as well as understanding what methodologies have the potential to greatly impact clinical research. 

In 2006, Paniagua was awarded a Monbukagakusho scholarship for her dissertation, which focused on the study of computer vision techniques for quality detection in natural textures that allowed her to research and develop three-dimensional textural features for quality classification in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering at the Tokyo Institute of Technology Imaging Science & Engineering Laboratory. After finishing her dissertation, she completed a year-long internship at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, New Jersey. She also worked on denoising algorithms for four-dimensional cardiovascular magnetic resonance images.

Bea received her Ph.D. in computer science from Heriot-Watt University and the University of Extremadura in 2010. She received her master’s and bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Extremadura in 2005 and 2003, respectively.

Get to Know Bea

What is your favorite thing about working at Kitware? The best part of working at Kitware is to be able to collaborate with others, both at Kitware and beyond. Some of the work we do is confidential to our customers, but part of my federally funded work through the National Institutes of Health involves having innovative ideas on how to solve problems. A lot of that work involves discussing and challenging those ideas with other people from the field. It is great to hear different points of view and discuss how to make your idea better and stronger. I love that Kitware is committed to working on projects that will have an impact on others.

What do you love most about what you do? Another great part of my work is knowing that the results of my work might be used to improve how certain diseases are detected or treated, and ultimately helping people with those diseases.

Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. In addition to my work at Kitware, I am focused on work that is equally important at home – being present as I raise my two children so I can serve as a role model and a champion for them as they grow to become leaders in our community. I believe that having an impact is not about completely leaning in or out, but being mindful of the shifting weights. Whether I’m working with a colleague, a student, or my children at home, I try to provide this valuable advice: Don’t focus on momentary success; true success comes when you are able to persist through thick and thin to make a lasting impact over time. 

I also have a number of hobbies that I enjoy such as music (I am an Alto in the Choral Society of Durham), dancing, traveling, and reading science fiction books and comics.
