Artificial Intelligence-augmented In Vivo Biomechanical Analysis and Imaging (BAI): Why Is It Worth Doing?


Abstract: In vivo biomechanical analysis and imaging (BAI) of soft biological matters (tissues and blood) provide insights into physiology and disease development and offers new perspectives in relevant diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Under the framework of BAI, Dr. Jiang and his team has developed innovative noninvasive image-based patient-specific diagnostic, monitoring, and predictive computational framework for patients with vascular aneurysms and cancer.

In this talk, Dr. Jiang will discuss his lab’s approaches to improving BAI by leveraging readily available artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. His recent foci have been on (1) the removal of labor-intensive and time-consuming components in BAI, and (2) the improvement of the outcome specificity of BAI, accelerating the translation of BAI into the clinical workflow. The utility of AI-augmented BAI is provided in two show-case examples: (1) assessment of vascular aneurysms and (2) noninvasive characterization of breast lesions.

Biography: Dr. Jiang directs the Center for Biocomputing and Digital Health and is a Professor in the Biomedical Department at Michigan Technological University. He has affiliated Professor appointments in the Departments of Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Michigan Technological University. He is also a visiting professor with the Medical Physics Department of the University of Wisconsin (Madison, WI) and a collaborative faculty member of the Radiology Department at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN).

His interdisciplinary research is at the interfaces of computational sciences, biomechanics, and medical imaging interfaces. His recent work has been mainly dedicated to developing and validating advanced computational algorithms for patient-specific modeling of vascular aneurysms and soft tissues. Dr. Jiang has more than 100 journal and conference papers and 7 US patents.
