Natural language processing of radiology reports, University of Haifa, Haifa
We are developing methods to extract imaging features and characteristics from free text radiology reports to enable decision support.
Current Research Interests:
My research interest is imaging informatics--ways computers can work with images to leverage their rich information content and to help physicians use images to guide personalized care. Just as biology has been revolutionized by online genetic data, now clinical medicine can be transformed by mining huge image repositories and electronically correlating image data with pathology and molecular data. Work in our lab thus lies at the intersection of biomedical informatics and imaging science, and we are working in several major areas. We are developing methods to extract information and meaning...
