Dr. Kalpathy-Cramer is also Scientific Director at MGB Center for Clinical Data Science, a Senior Scientist at the American College of Radiology Data Science Institute and a member of the RSNA Machine Learning Steering Sub-committee. She is an electrical engineer by training, having received a B.Tech in EE from IIT Bombay, India and a PhD in EE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her research interests include medical image analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence for zpplications in radiology, oncology and ophthalmology. The work in her lab at the intersection of computer science and medicine spans the spectrum from novel algorithm development to clinical deployment. She is passionate about the potential that these techniques have to improve access to healthcare in the US and worldwide. Dr. Kalpathy-Cramer has authored over 150 peer-reviewed publications and has written over a dozen book chapters. She is a Deputy Editor for the Radiology-AI journal, a journal from the Radiological Society of North America. This year, she was elected to the Council of Distinguished Investigators of the Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research.
John Mongan, MD, PhD is an Associate Professor and Associate Chair of Translational Informatics for the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UC San Francisco. He is a director of the UCSF Center for Intelligent Imaging (Ci2) where his research focuses on medical applications of artificial intelligence. His work on machine learning-based detection of pneumothorax was recently FDA-cleared for incorporation into a portable X-ray device, and he is the lead author on the Checklist for Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging (CLAIM), a guideline for manuscripts. Dr. Mongan is the in-coming Chair of the Machine Learning committee of the Radiological Society of North America. He is the lead author of Programming Interviews Exposed, now in its fourth edition and holds three computer software-related patents.
