Curtis Langlotz, MD, PhD

Dr. Langlotz is Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Informatics and Director of the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging (AIMI Center), which supports outstanding interdisciplinary artificial intelligence research that optimizes how clinical images are used to promote health. As Associate Chair for Information Systems and a Medical Informatics Director for Stanford Health Care, he is also responsible for the computer technology that supports the Stanford Radiology practice, including 7 million imaging studies that occupy 0.7 petabytes of storage.

Dr. Langlotz’s laboratory investigates the use of deep neural networks and other machine learning technologies to help radiologists detect disease and eliminate diagnostic errors. He has led many national and international efforts to improve the quality of radiology communication, including the RadLex™ terminology standard, the RadLex™ Playbook of radiology exam codes, the RSNA report template library, and a technical standard for communication of radiology templates. He has published over 100 scholarly articles, and is author of the recent book “The Radiology Report: A Guide to Thoughtful Communication for Radiologists and Other Medical Professionals”.

Raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, Dr. Langlotz received his undergraduate degree in Human Biology, masters in Computer Science, MD in Medicine, and PhD in Medical Information Science, all from Stanford University. He is a founder and past president of the Radiology Alliance for Health Services Research (RAHSR), and has served as president of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), and the College of SIIM Fellows. He is a former board member of the Association of University Radiologists (AUR), the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM). He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) as Liaison for Information Technology.

He is a recipient of the Lee B. Lusted Research Prize from the Society of Medical Decision Making and the Career Achievement Award from the Radiology Alliance for Health Services Research. He has founded three healthcare information technology companies, most recently Montage Healthcare Solutions, which was acquired by Nuance Communications in 2016.
