Affordable, Interpretable, and Equitable AI for Precision Oncology

May 06, 2024 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET

Have you been looking for ways to use artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical practice but not sure where to start? Attend this webinar for tips from Dr. Anant Madabhushi on applying AI in precision oncology. He’ll describe how AI can be affordable, easy to interpret, and help ensure more equitable care for every patient. Specifically, Dr. Madabhushi will discuss efforts by his group to develop AI-based approaches for measuring:

  • alterations in the immune architecture underlying diseases (i.e., collagen disorder) using AI and pathology images, and
  • changes in tumor blood vessels (vessel tortuosity) using AI and radiologic scans.

He’ll describe how biomarkers like these can help you predict how well a patient will respond to treatment, as well as monitor their response.

Dr. Madabhushi has been on the forefront of translating lab-created technologies into clinical practice. He’s pioneered the use of AI in precision oncology, offering new solutions for diagnosing cancers (i.e., breast, prostate, lung) and predicting how patients will respond to cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and protein inhibitors (i.e., cyclin-dependent kinase 4 and 6).

The Cancer Imaging Program is part of NCI’s Division of Cancer Treatment & Diagnosis. The program hosts this monthly NCI Imaging Community Webinar Series for scientists and clinicians interested in advancing cancer imaging. If you want to learn about upcoming opportunities for engagement, interdisciplinary collaboration, and current research showcases, you can explore upcoming events on the webinar series’ webpage.
