Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University, was elected unanimously to the National Cancer Institute’s Quantitative Imaging Network on account of his ongoing NCI-funded grant R01CA136535-01 titled, “Software to facilitate multimode, multi-scale fused data for Pathology and Radiology.”
The network is designed to promote research and development of quantitative imaging methods for the measurement of tumor response to therapies in clinical trial settings, with the overall goal of facilitating clinical decision-making. Projects include the appropriate development and adaptation and implementation of quantitative imaging methods, imaging protocols, and software solutions and tools and application of these methods in current and planned clinical therapy trials. The projects are focusing on imaging-derived quantitative measurements of responses to drugs and/or radiation therapy, and/or image-guided interventions.
As an associate member, Madabhushi will attend the quarterly quantitative imaging network meetings in Washington, D.C., and will contribute his expertise and tools being developed in computational imaging and radiology-pathology data fusion as part of his grant-funded work.
Madabhushi was also invited to serve as associate editor for the open access journal, BMC Medical Imaging. Specifically he will be assisting with the review of papers that fall in the “‘Genitourinary imaging” section.
BMC Medical Imaging is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles in relation to the development, evaluation, and use of imaging techniques and image processing tools to diagnose and manage disease.
