Imaging Informatics

The integrative imaging informatics team is a group of physicians, physicists, clinical informaticists, and researchers who believe in bringing innovative solutions to advance the research mission of the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. The team bridges gaps between researchers, administrators, and information technology professionals to add the best tools to the department’s research infrastructure, or develop them when needed.

In addition, members of the team are active in their own diverse research and development efforts including quality, patient safety, image processing, natural language processing, the value chain, and patient engagement.

In addition, the division offers a one year imaging informatics fellowship for physicians interested in developing theirs interest and skills in imaging informatics.

This fellowship, with clinical and non-clinical components, provides requisite skills and knowledge for the trainee to lead in operations, innovation, quality, and research related to imaging informatics. Fellows will participate in an ongoing curriculum covering technical, research, leadership, and management topics. Each fellow will be engaged in year-long academic projects, choose areas of interest for elective study, and be embedded in operational technology related projects. Acceptance will be contingent on acceptance to a clinical subspecialty area. Applicants must be ABR Board-certified or eligible, complete a US or Canadian residency program and be eligible to obtain an unrestricted Georgia medical license.

Please contact the program coordinator, Denise Fennell at for further information.
