Valentina Pedoia, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Department at UCSF. She is part of the Center of Intelligent Imaging where she serves as Co-director of the Educational Pillar. Her current research is focused in exploring the role of machine learning to extract imaging biomarkers of several musculoskeletal conditions including knee and hip Osteoarthritis, shoulder Instability and lower back pain. She develops analytics to model the complex interactions between morphological, biochemical and biomechanics aspects of the joints. She has great interest in the clinic al translation of novel technologies, as such she is invested in making the image acquisition and processing faster, safer, and smoother for patients and clinicians.
