Significance to patient care

Through collaboration with Mayo Clinic's Department of Radiology, Dr. Carter is helping test novel imaging approaches that produce high-quality images while minimizing risks such as radiation exposure. In addition, Dr. Carter works with interventional radiologists in testing whether image-guided therapies are safe and effective for the treatment of patients.

Dr. Carter's recent research expands the application of artificial intelligence approaches to health care. This includes automatic classification radiotracer uptake on molecular breast-imaging exams to sophisticated processing of electrocardiograms.
