    Research Overview

    Dr. Guo has been forcing on developing semi-automatic and automatic image analysis methods to aid efficient and reliable obtaining of quantitative imaging biomarkers. He has been working on a series of advanced image analysis algorithms, based on conventional and/or AI methods, for reliable and efficient segmentation of almost all solid tumors, as well as tissues and organs at various sites on CT and MR images. He is interested in developing deep learning-based technology that is more interpretable and explainable to radiologists.

    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.

  • Pingzhen Guo, MD

    Research Radiologist

    Dr. Guo obtained her MD at Hebei Medical University in Shijiazhuang, China and worked as a clinical radiologist for more than 30 years in China. Her specialties include lung diseases, especially lung cancer. She has worked as a research radiologist since 2007, both at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (2007-2009) and Columbia University Irving Medical Center (2009-2010 and 2016 to the present). Her main research focus is on assessment of therapy responses of clinical trials. She also evaluates the research of image analysis and quantitative imaging features.
