Research Staff Member, Medical Analytics (2006-2009)
Responsible for the design and execution of unique technologies for representing the evolution of brain cancer symptoms over time
|Worked with Columbia faculty and IBM team to design and test a system for representing evolution of brain cancer symptoms. Invented unique representations that could be displayed in any web browser. Evaluated the system using medical residents and included results as major part of NIH proposal. Published results of study in paper for SIMM 2009 conference. A US Patent has been filed on concepts the IBM team developed.|
|Invented and created the powerful new Tara system for displaying 3D MRI images in any web browser, and using a server connected to the IBM Cell high speed processor to register pairs of images in real time. Demonstrated the system at the 2007 RSNA conference. Installed and documented the system for use in the IBM Industrial Solutions Laboratory and coached the ISL staff on how to demonstrate it. Presented paper at CARS 2008 conference and filed US Patent on the use of web browsers to display 3D images.|
|Designed and implemented a prototype web-based system for displaying and comparing pediatric X-rays by age or by body part. Installed at IBM customer site in Indiana.|
|Designed and implemented a system for displaying cancer diagnoses in a visual structured data model.|
|Designed and implemented a standards-compliant system for representing pathology reports in the Clinical Document Architecture (CDA). Incorporated reader and translator modules into MedTAS medical text analytics system.|
|Designed system for extracting annotations from pathology reports into databases as part of team working on project with Memorial Sloan Kettering.|
|Invented and constructed a system for detection of protein-protein relations in Medline abstracts. Found better precision and recall (94/89) than any previously reported, based on test collection. Published paper in BMC Bioinformatics journal.|
