The Program Director and faculty at Ohio State believe it is imperative that you receive training in Informatics and Artificial/Augmented Intelligence, and its imaging applications, so that you are prepared to manage the incorporation of advanced technologies into the field of Radiology. Trainees in our residency program have several opportunities to become knowledgeable in this evolving field:

Imaging Informatics elective

Our residents can schedule an elective experience and/or mini-fellowship in Informatics and Artificial Intelligence, to help the resident understand the current and future state of advanced technologies in Radiology.

Research projects

We believe that research in the field of AI as it relates to Radiology is critical to the future of our specialty, and we strongly encourage residents to become involved in AI research with our Imaging Informatics team. See the articles below for examples of the type of cutting-edge research projects with which our residents can be involved:

National Imaging Informatics Course:

The department sponsors all residents to take this week-long course in Imaging Informatics. Through lectures, small group discussions, and problem solving situations, trainees will learn practical concepts and gain knowledge in this evolving field.

We have 24 staff members in Imaging Informatics, and 5 in the AI2 lab. In the lab you will find 16 advanced GPU-enabled systems including a DGX-station and a DGX-1 representing more than 120,000 cores (a CPU in a typical computer which has up to 8 cores) with total 667 GB of GPU memory, more than 1600 GB of system memory and over 100TB of disc storage.

If you would like more information on our efforts in Imaging Informatics and AI, we encourage you to visit our department’s Laboratory for Augmented Intelligence in Imaging website.  You can also reach out to Diagnostic Radiology resident, Dr. Angel Hatef, at for any additional information.
