Valentina Pedoia, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Department at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). Her main research interest in developing algorithms for advanced computer vision and machine learning with the aim of improving the usage of non-invasive imaging as diagnostic and prognostic tools.Her research focus is on exploring the role of deep learning and multidimensional data analysis in the extraction of contributors to osteoarthritis (OA), by studying analytics to model the complex interactions between morphological, biochemical and biomechanical aspects of the knee joint as a whole; deep learning convolutional neural network for musculoskeletal tissue segmentation and biomarkers discovery for outcome prediction and disease trajectory.
