RESEARCH SUMMARY

Dr. Turkbey’s main research interests focus on prostate cancer imaging (multiparametric MRI, PET CT), prostate biopsy techniques, focal therapy for prostate cancer and artificial intelligence (segmentation, decision support systems). Dr. Turkbey is the Director of the Artificial Intelligence Resource (AIR), which makes AI tools available to CCR investigators with the goal of developing better screening and detection methods or predictive markers for patients.

Areas of Expertise

1) Imaging, 2) Prostate cancer, 3) Lymphatic imaging, 4) Experimental MRI, 5) Artificial Intelligence
