Artificial Intelligence in Cancer Imaging: Bridging the Gap between Pathologist and Algorithm

Join us for free, half-day mini-symposium on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in cancer imaging.


The audience will gain knowledge on intelligent digital imaging workflows, machine learning (ML) tools, and artificial intelligence (AI) analysis that can assist pathologists and support researchers in integrating multilayered image data and machine learning algorithms into cancer diagnostic decision-making.


Our keynote speakers include:

  • Dr. Hamid Tizhoosh, Professor, University of Waterloo, Ontario, and Director of the Knowledge Inference in Medical Image Analysis (KIMIA) Lab; 
  • Dr. Phedias Diamandis, Neuropathologist and Clinician Scientist at UHN and Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, and; 
  • Dr. Trevor McKee, STTARR imaging facilities, UHN.

Utilization of Branched DNA (bDNA) Technologies in Cancer Research


The bDNA technologies offer multiplex, less expensive, accurate, and highly reproducible assays with a wide range of clinical applications, such as tumur classification, measurement of biomarker in liquid biopsies, and retrospective biomarkers validation in archival FFPE tissues.

The goal is to introduce the bDNA technologies (ViewRNA, QuantiGene Plex, and PrimeFlow RNA) and to establish a cooperative and dynamic spirit in this research area.

Date and time: Friday, June 27 | 1 – 3:30p.m.

Location: Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, 661 University Avenue
West Tower, Suite 510, Toronto, ON M5G 0A3
