My research interest is primarily in informatics and use of computers to enhance the practice of radiology and medicine.  During my radiology residency I developed keyboard and mouse macros using autohotkey to improve the radiology user interface on PACS.  I also developed a database and search interface to radiology, and pathology reports as well as the electronic medical record.  I also developed a database of PACS annotations and key images for use in machine learning for radiology image segmentation.  I have also developed convolutional neural networks for accurate segmentation of ct images.  My database tools have been helpful in collaborating with dozens of researchers leading to over 50 publications.  I am also on the ACR Informatics Advisory Council.  I have consulted for several radiology software startups as well as established PACS vendors.
