Research Overview

Here at UT Southwestern, the Medical Artificial Intelligence and Automation (MAIA) Laboratory aims to explore the vast capabilities and potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact on the field of medicine. Our objective is to innovate, develop, and apply the latest and cutting edge AI algorithms and methods for a wide range of medical applications, including but not limited to:

  • Image reconstruction and segmentation
  • Disease diagnosis and treatment solution recommendation
  • Care delivery optimization, automation, safety
  • Treatment outcome and toxicity prediction
  • Individualized and precision medicine
  • Patient care in resource limited regions
  • Medical error detection and prevention
  • Assisted care and chronic disease management with wearable sensors

Specifically, we will be using cancer radiation therapy as the major platform for the development and testing of new AI algorithms and ideas.
