My research is at the intersection of computer vision, machine learning, and medical imaging, with a dual focus on mammography and computed tomography (CT). Together with our industry partner, we developed deep learning algorithms for breast cancer screening with 2D/3D mammography, and that product is now undergoing FDA approval with anticipated rollout to clinics worldwide. We also pioneer the creation of "digital twin" anatomical models from patient imaging data, using these models to forge new paths in CT scan analysis through virtual readers and deep learning techniques. Additionally, we're developing a computer-aided triage system for detecting diseases across multiple organs in body CT scans, leveraging hospital-scale datasets and integrating natural language processing with deep learning for comprehensive disease classification.
