Dr Reza Forghani will be a guest speaker at Journée Phare 2018!

The Journée Phare 2018 organizing committee is very pleased to announce that we will be welcoming Dr Reza Forghani at the 10th edition of the Journée Phare!


Reza Forghani is the Associate Director of the Department of Radiology at Montreal’s Jewish General Hospital and a researcher at the Lady Davis Institute. Dr. Forghani holds a medical degree and a doctorate from McGill University and has completed a Fellowship at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Forghani is an expert in neuroradiology and imaging for head and neck. Her research focuses on the use of artificial intelligence in cancer detection, to improve diagnostic accuracy and reduce the need for invasive biopsies. He is involved in the development of “Radiomics”, a field of medical study that combines data from both medical imaging and patient records. The combination of radiomics and artificial intelligence thus foreshadows a personalized medicine more effective in oncology. His work, at the meeting of basic science, clinical science, technology and biology, provides insight into the power of integrating innovations into health care.
