2021 AIMI Symposium + BOLD-AIR Summit @ Virtual Livestream

Stanford AIMI Director Curt Langlotz and Co-Directors Matt Lungren and Nigam Shah invite you to join us on August 3 for the 2021 Stanford Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging (AIMI) Symposium. The virtual symposium will focus on the latest, best research on the role of AI in diagnostic excellence across medicine, current areas of impact, fairness and societal impact, and translation and clinical implementation. The program includes talks, interactive panel discussions, and breakout sessions. Registration is free and open to all.

 

Also, the 2nd Annual BiOethics, the Law, and Data-sharing: AI in Radiology (BOLD-AIR) Summit will be held on August 4, in conjunction with the AIMI Symposium. The summit will convene a broad range of speakers in bioethics, law, regulation, industry groups, and patient safety and data privacy, to address the latest ethical, regulatory, and legal challenges regarding AI in radiology.

ABSTRACT

There is a growing population of over 10 million Americans that live with an elevated risk of having a stroke.

Each year approximately 1 million Americans survive a stroke or a ministroke, often severely affected by its debilitating effects. A more disabling stroke frequently occurs after the seminal events, leaving patients and their families scarred for life.

TIME = BRAIN. Early hospital presentation is the most critical determinant in good stroke outcomes. However, most patients arrive at the hospital often hours after the event, with less than 10% receiving any form of treatment (thrombolysis / thrombectomy).

As a result, at risk individuals struggle daily with the fear, a stroke might happen during night-time or when they are alone. Unfortunately a stroke that goes unnoticed for hours, is most often not treatable due to the lack of salvageable tissue.

To alleviate that fear, we are creating an AI-powered, smart-headband that analyzes brain waves to detect the onset of an event immediately, and alert the patient, caregivers and 911.

Our stroke detection AI has already been shown to detect ischemia during high-risk surgeries with 90% sensitivity and no false positives.

We have received FDA breakthrough designation for our solution and are currently running a pilot human factors and signal quality study.

Our vision is to provide peace of mind and optimal brain health for everyone.

 

ABOUT
Orestis is the CEO and Co-founder of Zeit Medical, a telehealth company that offers at home monitoring and alert solutions for patients at risk for stroke. Prior to starting Zeit, Orestis was a Stanford Biodesign Innovation Fellow where his team developed the initial idea about at-home stroke detection. Orestis trained as a Mechanical Engineer, at Aristotle University, Greece, earned his PhD in Biotechnology and Bioengineering at EPFL, Switzerland and conducted cutting edge research in flexible wearable electronics with the Bao Group at Stanford Chemical Engineering. He has authored more than twenty publications in prestigious journals and has filed for a variety of patents at the intersection of materials technology and medical devices. Orestis currently lives in San Francisco, where he also contributes to the UCSF-Stanford pediatric device consortium as a technology advisor.  He also maintains close ties with the med-tech and health-tech communities in Switzerland and Greece, contributing to regional Biodesign educational workshops.

CEDSS: The First Cell: A new model for cancer research and treatment

ABSTRACT

Cancer research continues to be predicated on a 1970’s model of research and treatment. Despite half a century of intense research, we are failing spectacularly to improve the outcome for patients with advanced disease. Those who are cured continue to be treated mostly with the older strategies (surgery-chemo-radiation). Our contention is that the real solution to the cancer problem is to diagnose cancer early, at the stage of The First Cell. The rapidly evolving technologies are doing much in this area but need to be expanded. We study a pre-leukemic condition called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with the hope that we can detect the first leukemia cells as the disease transforms to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Towards this end, we have collected blood and bone marrow samples on MDS and AML patients since 1984. Today, our Tissue Repository has more than 60,000 samples. We propose novel methods to identify surrogate markers that can identify the First Cell through studying the serial samples of patients who evolve from MDS to AML.

 

ABOUT

Dr. Raza is a Professor of Medicine and Director of the MDS Center at Columbia University in New York, NY.She started her research in Myelodisplastic Syndromes (MDS) in 1982 and moved to Rush University, Chicago, Illinois in 1992, where she was the Charles Arthur Weaver Professor in Oncology and Director, Division of Myeloid Diseases. The MDS Program, along with a Tissue Repository containing more than 50,000 samples from MDS and acute leukemia patients was successfully relocated to the University of Massachusetts in 2004 and to Columbia University in 2010.

Before moving to New York, Dr. Raza was the Chief of Hematology Oncology and the Gladys Smith Martin Professor of Oncology at the University of Massachussetts in Worcester. She has published the results of her laboratory research and clinical trials in prestigious, peer reviewed journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, Nature, Blood, Cancer, Cancer Research, British Journal of Hematology, Leukemia, and Leukemia Research. Dr. Raza serves on numerous national and international panels as a reviewer, consultant and advisor and is the recipient of a number of awards.
