Bleeding is the most common cause of potentially survivable death in trauma, in both military and civilian settings. Whole blood is recognized as the resuscitation fluid of choice; however, it has limited viability, requires cold storage, and is not always available due to logistical challenges and donor dependence. Despite the Department of Defense’s (DoD) extensive and highly effective blood program, rapid patient evacuation to a facility that has blood is not always an option.

A manuscript by Anirban Sen Gupta, Leonard Case Jr. Professor of Engineering in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, is featured on the October 2022 cover of ACS Nano.

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.

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”.

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.
