Bharti Khurana, MD, of the Department of Radiology, was awarded an American College of Radiology (ACR) Innovation Fund Grant for her project “Making the Invisible Visible: Transforming the Detection of Intimate Partner Violence.”
Innovation Fund Grants support untested, uncommon and distinctive ideas and activities that lead to groundbreaking efforts that align with and support the goals and objectives of the ACR’s Strategic Plan. This $100,000 award will support Khurana’s ongoing work to use radiology and machine learning to enable health care providers to identify signs of intimate partner violence.
Khurana is an emergency radiologist and the founding director of the Trauma Imaging Research and Innovation Center. More broadly, her clinical and research efforts involve accurate and meaningful imaging interpretation with rapid application of clinical knowledge for emergency department patients, orthopaedic and spine trauma, intimate partner violence, geriatric trauma, frailty, whole-body CT for trauma, MRI optimization, machine learning tools, education and career-building in emergency radiology.
Founded in 1923, the American College of Radiology is at the forefront of radiology evolution, representing more than 41,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists.
