Duke Center for Artificial Intelligence in radiology brings together the expertise and the resources needed for successful development of AI algorithms and their implementation in clinical practice. Within the center, we conduct research on machine learning in medical imaging with a strong involvement of physicians as well as computer scientists. Our goal is develop technologically strong solutions for problems that truly matter in the clinical practice. As the world of medicine increasingly engages computer algorithms, we are also involved in the development of informatics solutions that make clinical testing, and clinical implementation of AI algorithms possible. The center also serves as a resource to the larger Duke community in the matters of AI in medical imaging.
The center operates under the joint leadership of Dr. Maciej Mazurowski who serves as the Scientific Director and Dr. Walter Wiggins who serves as the Clinical Director. Dr. Mazurowski is an Associate Professor of Radiology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biostatistics and Bioinformatics and has been leading a fedarally-funded laboratory focusing on applications of machine learning in medical imaging. Dr. Walter Wiggins is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and a clinical neuroradiologists with expertise in clinical informatics and implementation of AI in radiology practices.
