    Research Overview

    Dr. Ma has a solid foundation in physics and mathematics. He dedicates his time to medical image analysis research, which is a multidisciplinary field of radiology, medical physics, artificial intelligence, data science, and statistics. Dr. Ma is developing novel artificial intelligence techniques to improve computer-aided diagnosis methods for medical image analysis as well as cancer diagnosis and assessment. Specifically, he has been focusing on lung and liver nodule analysis and CT quality control of optimal contrast enhancement with radiomics, machine learning, and deep learning approaches. Currently, he is interested in automated universal lesion detection, segmentation, classification, registration, and measurement in full-body CT for cancer screening, diagnosis, and response assessment. Dr. Ma’s goal is to make radiology easier and better for both patients and radiologists! See a full list of Dr. Ma's publications.
