In addition to preventing injury, wearable tech can help optimize other aspects of an athlete’s performance. 

Congratulations to CCIPD authors Amir Reza Sadri, Thomas DeSilvio, and Prathyush Chirra for their award-winning paper titled, “Deep hybrid convolutional wavelet networks: application to predicting response to chemoradiation in rectal cancers via MRI.” 

The Research Highlights collection showcases the breadth of work being done by primary investigators with the support of grants from the EGRP portfolio.

Dustin Tyler invited to White House as part of announcement of new federal agency to push for biomedical breakthroughs

Case Western Reserve University researchers develop next generation of artificial platelets that can stop bleeding from an injury faster

A Dell Technologies article titled, “This machine learning model may improve heart transplant outcomes”, discusses the contributions of Anant Madabhushi, PhD and the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics in using Machine Learning to improve heart transplant outcomes. 

CCIPD and collaborators identified biomarkers to identify which patients with oropharyngeal cancer will benefit from therapy ‘de-escalation’. 

A patient diagnosed with the aggressive brain tumor glioblastoma typically has only 15 months to live. The grim prognosis can lead to multiple surgeries to remove and then test suspected tumors. But what if clinicians could determine whether a suspicious tumor is benign or malignant without putting patients under the knife?

In an episode of the podcast “AI-ready Healthcare”, podcast host Anirban Mukhopadhyay,  interviewed Anant Madabhushi, PhD, on the topic of translation from AI research to clinical oncology. The podcast can be found on Apple Podcasts.

On November 17, 2021, Ziwei Liu successfully defended his Master’s Thesis titled, “Radiomics characterization of the rectal environment on MRI after chemoradiation to accurately evaluate pathologic response outcomes in rectal cancer”.

Case Western Reserve-led team to test artificial intelligence medical imaging to determine which rectal cancer patients need surgery—or can avoid it
 

Over the past year and a half, our hospitals, overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients desperate for oxygen, have been debilitated by staff and resource shortages. While many called for vaccines as a hopeful cure-all, some recognized a faster alternative: efficient and deliberate distribution of hospital resources.

“Novel, Robust Radiomic Approaches for Predicting Outcome and Response in Lung Cancers”

On November 19, 2021, Vincent Dong successfully defended his Master’s Thesis titled, “Evaluating the utility of deep learning for predicting therapeutic response for diabetic retinopathy”.

Congratulations to CCIPD’s Executive Director Katherine Gullett for being selected as a Veale Entrepreneurship Fellow.

NANS Lifetime Achievement Award is intended to recognize an individual who has made significant and lasting contributions to the field of neuromodulation over the course of their career. 

Developments in artificial intelligence are opening up new possibilities in radiology. The advancements help doctors conduct more accurate diagnoses and predict patient outcomes. 

Machine-learning algorithms can guide humans toward new experiments and theories
