In the era of radiomics and artificial intelligence, research in musculoskeletal radiology is rapidly advancing to provide novel solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease. This webinar will aim to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence for musculoskeletal imaging, while highlighting emerging research trends. The webinar will also emphasize on the major hurdles in the translation of AI research to everyday musculoskeletal imaging practice.

    Michail Klontzas

    Michail Klontzas is the chief resident of the Diagnostic Radiology residency program at the University Hospital of Heraklion and collaborating researcher of the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology (ICS-FORTH) in Greece. Dr Klontzas obtained his PhD from Imperial College London and his MD from the University of Crete. After obtaining his PhD he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Emory University School of Medicine and the W.H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering of Georgia Institute of Technology. For his research, Dr Klontzas has received funding from the European Union and his PhD thesis was voted by Imperial students as one of the three best departmental PhD theses of 2018. His current research interests lie in the field of musculoskeletal radiology and the application of radiomics and artificial intelligence methods on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease. Dr Klontzas has received two “Invest in the Youth” fellowships from the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and has been selected as one of the two finalists for the “Radiology Rising Star” award of AuntMinnie (2022). Dr Klontzas is currently a member of the trainee editorial board of RadioGraphics (RSNA), elected board member of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) and representative of EuSoMII at the Radiology Trainee Forum of the ESR. He has published more than 45 peer-reviewed journal papers on musculoskeletal radiology and bone tissue engineering in journals including Radiology, European Radiology, Acta Biomaterialia, AJR, European Journal of Radiology, Diagnostic & Interventional Imaging and Skeletal Radiology (h-index: 15, i-10: 18 –Google Scholar), six book chapters for international publishers and his work has been presented in several conferences in Europe and the USA. Dr Klontzas has given invited talks on musculoskeletal radiology and bone marrow imaging at the Annual Meetings of ESSR and the ECR. Dr Klontzas has been active in teaching musculoskeletal radiology, biomedical engineering and omics applications to undergraduate and post-graduate students of the University of Crete. Finally, he serves as editorial board member for Cell and Tissue Banking and ad-hoc reviewer for several high impact journals, in the fields of artificial intelligence, radiology and biomedical engineering such as the European Journal of Radiology, European Radiology, Regenerative Medicine, Diagnostics, Materials, PLoS Medicine, Cancer Imaging and others.
