Expertise: medical imaging, computed tomography, ultrasound, cardiothoracic radiology, abdominal radiology, picture archiving and communication system, imaging informatics, safety and quality in healthcare
Srini Tridandapani (S’86-M’95-SM’12) received the B.E. degree from Anna University, Chennai, India, and the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA, all in electrical engineering. After postdoctoral training in computer science at the University of California, Davis, CA, USA, he was an Assistant Professor of electrical and computer engineering at Iowa State University. He then took the bold plunge into medical school and received the M.D. degree followed by residency training in radiology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. He subsequently received a Masters degree in clinical and translational research and an M.B.A. from Emory University, Atlanta, GA, USA. He received clinical fellowships in cardiothoracic imaging and abdominal imaging also from Emory University. A board-certified radiologist, he is a Professor and Vice Chair for Imaging Informatics, Department of Radiology, at University of Alabama, Birmingham, AL, USA and an Adjunct Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA. This work was performed while he was on the faculty of the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University. His current research involves the development of novel gating strategies for optimizing cardiac computed tomography and innovative tools to increase quality and patient safety in medical imaging.
