About us

The Data Integration and AI in Radiology group centralizes medical data across institutes within the University Hospital of Essen (UHE) and uses the assembled data to develop AI-based medical methods to improve patient care.

 

The storage and exchange of data across medical institutions in Germany is oftentimes unstructured and unstandardized. Moreover, many medical specializations develop isolated IT techniques and solutions that, whilst benefiting the individual specialization, nevertheless restrict the interdisciplinary exchange of data within the larger hospital organization.

 

As a solution to this problem, our data integration team developed and continue to expand upon the Smart Hospital Information Platform (SHIP). This information system acts as a container for web-based applications and integrates clinical subsystems into the larger IT infrastructure of the UHE. Our data engineers import medical data from a heterogenous selection of resource systems and enable the digitalization of medical records to allow simple, systematic, and centralized patient documentation.

 

Our AI team works in close cooperation with our data integration team to use structured medical data in the development of AI-based medical tools. With more than thirty ongoing projects, we seek to refine and expedite diagnoses and optimize the quality of patient care. Many of our projects fall within the domain of radiology and medical imaging, however, a number of projects extend into other areas of medicine, such as transfusion medicine and nuclear medicine.

 

Our research is strongly characterized by the principles of Explainable AI. We aim to develop AI methods that are not only high-performing, but that are applicable in real-world settings and encourage user trust. Our projects are all intended as direct solutions to the immediate needs of various clinics, and are developed with careful attention to transparency and user-friendliness.
