The accelerated pace by which biomedical big data is being generated in the healthcare enterprise holds enormous promise in developing individualized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies towards precision medicine. My research aims to improve the effectiveness, delivery, and utility of diagnostic imaging services by harnessing data that are generated and captured as part of routine clinical care. My research contributions have been focused in four areas:
These developments are being practically implemented in a variety of clinical areas, spanning early detection, diagnosis, and treatment.
