Pittsburgh hosts a strong foundation of expertise, resources, and data that give it an immense amount of capability to lead medical imaging artificial intelligence (AI) research and innovations. The Pittsburgh Center for AI Innovation in Medical Imaging (CAIIMI) was launched in January 2020 and, to date, has engaged 98 members (researchers, clinicians, and outreach members) from 9 different schools at the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and Carnegie Mellon University.  The Center presents as a unique multi-disciplinary team and uses a convergence approach to integrate distinct expertise to advance the field of medical imaging AI. CAIIMI pursues to lead large-scale research efforts and aims to build strong academic-industry partnership. 


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a new revolutionary technique for medical research and is reshaping tomorrow’s clinical practice in medical imaging. Pittsburgh hosts a strong foundation of expertise and resources that give it an immense amount of opportunity to lead research and innovations in medical imaging AI.


Our vision is to build a center for advanced innovative AI research, education, clinical translation, commercialization, and collaborations in medical imaging by synergizing computational expertise and clinical resources in Pittsburgh, resulting in a world-class imaging AI research and translation center.


Our mission seeks to build a center for innovative medical imaging AI research and clinical translation.
