Comparison of Mammography Artificial Intelligence Algorithms for 5-year Breast Cancer Risk Prediction: An Observational Study

Presented by Vignesh A. Arasu, MD, PhD

Vignesh A. Arasu, MD, PhD, is a Research Scientist with the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. He is also a practicing radiologist subspecializing in breast imaging at Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center.

Dr. Arasu conducts research at the intersection of medical imaging, breast cancer, and artificial intelligence (AI). As an embedded clinician researcher, he evaluates priority operational issues in breast cancer medical imaging to accelerate implementation and innovation. As a research principal investigator, he oversees two randomized trials investigating the use of AI for breast cancer screening.

Dr. Arasu earned his medical degree and completed his radiology residency and fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He also holds a PhD in Epidemiology and Translational Science from UCSF.

Artificial Intelligence in Cancer Research – AI PHI Affinity Group

(First Friday of each month)

This group was formed to discuss the current trends and applications of artificial intelligence in cancer research and clinical practice. The group brings together AI researchers in a variety of fields (computer science, engineering, nutrition, epidemiology radiology, etc) with clinicians and advocates. Students, trainees and faculty with any or no background in AI are encouraged to attend. The goal is to foster collaborative interactions to solve problems in cancer that were thought to be unsolvable a decade ago before the broad use of deep learning and AI in medicine.
