UCSF launches AI center for medical imaging

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

October 14, 2019 -- The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is launching a new center to accelerate the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in radiology.

UCSF's Center for Intelligent Imaging (ci2) will develop and apply AI to devise new ways to view the internal body and evaluate health and disease. Center researchers will use patient images and clinical data from UCSF Health and other institutions to develop, test, and validate deep-learning algorithms.

Also, the center will link academic innovation to startups to promote collaborative AI imaging research and development. London-based startup Kheiron Medical Technologies will work with the UCSF breast imaging group to ensure that its Mia breast cancer screening software can be safely and feasibly deployed in ethnically diverse populations.

Graphics processing unit technology developer Nvidia will help the center build infrastructure and tools that will enable the translation of AI into clinical practice.
